Crinoids are among the most ancient organisms in the sea. Fossil studies indicate that they have remained the same for thousands of years. Free swimming animals, crinoids have many arms which gather plankton from the water column and feed it to the mouth in the central disk.
Crinoids are seen in many colors-yellow, red, brown, black, and varigated. Crinoids have feet which attach to soft or hard corals stabilizing them in the currents which bring abundant plankton on which they feed
