What the heck? I did my first 10% water change with my RC and I see the tank all cloudy with a milky white. I think I did something wrong and the RC caused a snowstorm cause it's high in alk and my tank is only around 7.3.
I look and there's literally hundreds of good size (at least 2" from arm to arm) starfish in my tank in packs all balled up, shooting something nasty in my tank.
As I'm writing this, they seem to be done (if you know what I mean), but they're hanging out all over the corals. The corals don't seem too bothered by the substance, in fact the lps are feeding.
Now I'm not new to those tiny brittle stars coming out when I mess with the tank, but these are the largest ones I've seen in my systems and they've definitely never done this. I understand biology goes on whether I want it to or not, and I've seen the famous Tang breeding on the documentary, but in a closed system, can it do harm?
Q: 1.Is this stuff going to pollute my tank and should I do another water change?
Q.2.Should I put carbon in a high flow area to clear this up or should I just leave things alone?
