Hi I’m new to this hobby and forum and would like some advice on my new set up!
I have a Red Sea reefer 170, it has a sump skimmer and the hydra hd 26 light. I started my tank about 3 months ago with live sand and my own ro/di water, I then bought some live rock from a local guy closing down his tank. After a couple of weeks I noticed about 20 of these little starfish in my tank which after looking up online some people regard them as a pest.
In a bit of a panic I removed the starfish and all the rocks in a bid to kill off the starfish, but one or two still appear every couple of days. I currently haven’t got any fish or corals, but do plan to keep both in future.
My question is, should I just start over whilst it’s easy enough to do as I have no live stock or should I just accept the starfish and crack on building my tank, or is there other options?
