Hi there,
I saw the other day a shop that sell different kinds of Sea Star / Star Fish. Was wondering how many people keep them in there tanks and how do you feed them?

I have some brittle seastars and they nocturnal. I dont feed them specificly. They crawl the tank at night looking for food. Suppose they make part of the cleanup crew.

I know the other species might be a more tricky. Like the lynchias for example. If im not mistaken they need iodene.

But yeah seastars are awsome. Just need to read up a bit more before you just buy one. Some might need special care.

Thanks for the feedback, Dexter. I googled and it seems to me the one I saw might be a brown Northern Sea Star.
