    Hi :)

    I'm thinking about buying a volcano starfish. Does anyone have one? Are they easy to keep and really coral/livestock safe? Any reason that I should not get one or anything I should look out for?

    I have seem them imported a lot but not that many in reefers tanks which makes me believe that their survival rate in our tanks are not that great.
