I have no idea where mine came from as it wasn't on my LR I added to my tank, unless it some how buried itself ????

I saw the same species selling for R250.00 :p

The thing to watch with starfish - they are scavengers, and if you see them climbing up the sides of your tank it generally means they are hungry - i piece fish/cockle/prawn buried in your subtrate or tank floor will stop them starving - if you have no substrate - take it to an lfs - they might buy it or swap it for something.
