    well you dont expect him to stay still all day do you? Probably under a section of reef, or in the sand.

    what star fish was it?

    ok werner, youll probably find all the bright lights and star dome were too much and he is resting up a while. Give him a few days to a week to settle in a little :)

    and get a pic and an ID so you know what cretchure you have! ":)

    Yip, definitely a sand sifting starfish, they spend most of their time under the sand.
