Baby snail growing out of star fish leg - help!

Postby JodyDL » Sun 08 Jul, 2018 10:56 pm

Hello everyone,

I have a starfish which we introduced to our tank with our clean up crew 2 weeks ago. When we put him in the tank we noticed a small bump on his leg. Thinking nothing of it, we left it and kept an eye on him to make sure it didn't get bigger.

Today, i went to check on him and noticed a baby snail shell poking out of the lump!! I dont really know what to do and can't find any information anywhere on Google to tell me what is happening and what to do! If someone could please give me some information or at least point me in the right direction i would be very grateful!
Thank you
