Brittle starfish in a Fish only???

I have a 180 gallon fish only tank. (no live rock) I have a picasso trigger, dogface puffer, volitan lionfish, yellow tang, and a koran angel. My mother in law has a yellow brittle starfish that she would like to get rid of. It's disk is about 1 1/2 inches across and its legs are about 10 inches long. There is not special lighting on the tank, just NO flourescents. I have a trickle filter and a UV sterilizer. Would I be safe putting the starfish in that tank or would it be homocide for the starfish.

95% of fish mortality results from improper housing and nutrition.

IMO, the star would not last very long.
