    @titansti trying to decide what's beat.
    Sand sifting starfish or sand sifting gobi

    I would say go for a sand sifting gobi. I know if the starfish is starving you would never notice as it is hidden in the sand

    They will cover any coral that is on the sand bed, so i assume it all depends on what your coral choices and layout will be

    Not all gobies carry sand that high up, some sift very low. Try to do more research, you will find them. And as with all fish, each individual differ...

    I would also rather suggest a goby, not a sandsifter seastar. Very few systems are actually able to maintain their feeding requirements.

    Ok Thanx @Gesiggie
    I'm leaning more towards the goby.
    The wife is star fish mad.
    So I had that in mind to sift the sand and make her happy.
    Will have to get info or suggestions to get a diff starfish to make her happy.

    For a nano tank, I would not suggest any stars, other than maybe the macro brittle stars. Although they only come out at night or feedingtime

    I've got an orange spotted goby if u're interested. Great little guy, plenty of attitude, unfortunately my scopas tang seems to enjoy troubling him, so I might consider selling him before it becomes a problem.

    it depends on the in tank flow and substrate grain size. Bigger and less flow, they tend to release higher.
