    Many starfish are predatory - make sure you keep something that is compatible with your tank mates. If you have a reef aquarium stay away from chocolate chip starfish.

    and anything with horns

    from what i have read starfish like to eat the bacterial film that grows on the glass and live rock so make sure you tank has been running for a little while before you buy it
