Well this is my first real starfish.Ive always wanted one but was to scared to get one.Ive herd all the horror stories about them.I picked him up at oddballs the other night.It was hard to decide between the starfish and the joker clams.One day ill be brave and get one.

Looks like "Green Death" (re: Shimek - Marine Invertebrates page 388).
"...one of the most vicious invertebrates found in captivity, not suitable for reef tanks"
Hope your fish don't sleep...

Dang Jarrod did you fall for the starfish line like I did? At least you didnt fall for a chocolate chip. It is cool no matter how destructive.
I had a couple percs and got one of those green brittles and the first night one was gone, and the star was in the fuge. If you have big fish who cares though, they are cool anyhow...

the guy i baught this star from had him in an eclipse 12 with a small damsel and a black perc i sold this star to him about 4 or 5 months back and told him to feed the star at least 2 times a week if he did not want to loose his fish and thats what he did and to my amazement he never ate any of his fish?so get to feeding him j rod !!

LOL, did Jarrod get this disclaimer before buying the star???

i was pretty busy when they got this guy and i dont think he got the story until later .but jerod is a big boy(no phun intended)he does a lot of research on all his tank inhibatants!!
Oh i didn't mean to suggest anything. I was just telling my experience and alot of other people experience with the stars. Sorry bout that Scotty...

It's pretty much just a matter of time before it snags a fish. I was just surprised Scott would sell Jarrod that knowing what he has in his tank.
Good luck Jarrod.

I was there when Jarrod bought it... as I remember, it came with a "needs to be kept fed" warning....
