Add on top to all of the fish or even coral eating, any starfish will search for any small invertabrates in the sand(almost all of those filter feeding worms),That is why i never try to get one even my wife thinks they are cute =.="

I've had my Brittle Star for about a year, and have had no problem with it eating corals at all. I've seen it go for my CBS when it was molting, but that's about it.

I saw this post and thought "hmmm, I had the same question a while back, lo & behold, I read part way through the original post thinking "this is awfully familiar sounding" just to realize that it *is* my post.

Anyway, noodus, our serpent stars are the same ones as the ones in your link. I have decided that they did not kill the fish, but enjoyed a meal as part of their clean up duties. They move around all the time, hanging out in different rocks. They have gotten quite a bit bigger than when I first posted, but we haven't lost a single fish since that post.

Try feeding sinking pellets.

We target feed ours when we feed the fish. We use a turkey baster and some green frozen food (no clue what it is, we buy it from the lfs and it is in an unmarked ziplock bag). I love to watch the "octopus" arms come out and wrap around a piece of food! Ours are getting pretty big now, the central disk is about as big as a 50 cent piece!
