message this message is importantit;s a crinoid or feather star....they're a relative of the sea cucumber...believi it or not. filter feeders, catching passing nutrients on hte current, they're capable of moving around on the reef or detaching themselves & flaoting free. oh & they're alos really, really sticky & often get stuck to the wetsuits of inept night divers hehehe wink smile
