I've never seen a choclate chip star catch a live fish, I have, however, seen one crawl over to an anemone, turn the anemone upside down and start eating it. Choclate chip stars are not reef safe.

As for aqcclimation...a drip acclimation of 4-6 hours is recommended for the star and I would do a 1-2 hour drip acclimation on the anemone.
