Hey,
Has anyone bought these and had them delivered? None of my LFS stock them.

Would need to know if they shipped ok?

My asternia stars are munching the zoas! The lil bastards.
Thanks
Rob.
I might be back....

Nope.  But I have had cleaners and blood shrimp shipped and they all survived and are still with me a year on.

I've got two for exactly the same reason, but I didn't have them shipped.

They do appear much more physically delicate than your average shrimp, and I wouldn't ship them in the same bag, as they fight if they're not a mated pair. If they fight in the tank, they just walk away from each other but in a bag they might fight to the death.

Mine have nearly doubled in size in the weeks I've had them. I've not really noticed a decrease in Asterina population, but there were thousands. The shrimps are eating them regularly though, several a day each I'd say...

Kewl,  I'll ask the LFS to try and aquire some! I thought they look delicate compared to blood and cleaners.
I might be back....
