If you are going to have a reef, I would stay away from them. They are known to be coral munchers.

They do look cool. I'm pretty sure their like chocolate chip starfish and they can even eat away coraline alge
I love the Grateful dead

I think they are amazing in appearance as well. I would suggest maybe putting them in a preditor tank that doesn't have a reef set up.
