    The corals on the left looks like an assortment of zoanthids and palythoas. The pink coral is a finger leather. I'm not too sure what that specific sea star eats

    Not sure on the star, but how old is the tank now, I would let it mature properly first! Return the star! as it will probably die of starvation.

    You got it wrong. They are not corals. Dirty, scrubby finger digits, they are. :)


    We are talking about center top.:eek:

    Your starfish looks like it could be a Fromia indica, can't see very clearly, I fear your tank is far too young to sustain it, they need mature tanks with algae, detritus and other micro-organisms for it to feed on.

    If you would like to increase your divirsity you can get some pulsing xenia from me. I got them when my tank was just cycled and they have been doing great ever since. Have to much right now so let me know if you want a frag.
