Green Brittle Star Dying?

0

Hi, I have a 45 gallon saltwater reef tank and have had a Green Brittle Star in there for about a year now. He is rather large and today I noticed one of my small anemones affixed itself to the brittle star’s body (on the top). Well, when I came home, all I saw was a little bit of the anemone’s tentacles protruding from the upper part of brittle star’s body…. Obviously he penetrated it’s skin and had moved INSIDE the brittle star. Well, the brittle star has continued to develop more “holes” on its upper body and is “hiding” by the filter versus behind the live rock (where it has remained for the last X months).
