[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
During low tide the Ophiomastix emerge by the hundreds, and each of them has a different design and colors, there I want to show someone in a small series,this is the last.

Biota > Animalia (Kingdom) > Echinodermata (Phylum) > Asterozoa (Subphylum) > Ophiuroidea (Class) > Ophiurida (Order) > Ophiurina (Suborder) > Gnathophiurina (Infraorder) > Ophiocomidae (Family) > Ophiocominae (Subfamily)

Natural Environment: Inhabits protected reef areas
General Husbandry: Has a temperature range of 72 to 83°F (22 - 28°C). Total diameter including spines is about 8 inches (20 cm) and feeds upon organic matter/detritus. Rarely seen in the trade, and/or usually misidentified. Not safely kept with encrusting invertebrate. Needs plenty of green matter.
Pic taken underwater.

Durante la bassa marea gli Ophiomastix emergono a centinaia,ed ognuno di essi ha un disegno e colori differenti,ve ne voglio mostrare qualcuno,questo è l'ultimo della serie.
