    Hi all.
    I have a tl550 and its been running for about three months.
    I would really like to get a starfish. Any special things i should know and which type would be best?

    Thanks

    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
