Please don't go collecting from beaches or any wild habitat for that matter. Local laws may prohibit it. There is also the risk of them carrying unwanted hitchhikers into your tank. Another risk is that they are not used to parameter fluctuations, and may be very sensitive.

we actually had thousands of these was up on our beach after the storm. It made national news. All that were kept were acclimated over several hours and i got permission from local authorities first before i took them home.

But yes, i understand what you are saying. Collecting the animals without the proper licensing and or permits can really land you in a heap of trouble with the law.

all of those stars will starve to death. they need quite a bit of microfauna that is found in the sand. there's simply not enough in most aquariums.

They are actually going back into the ocean. The area where they got washed ashore is where the ocean feeds into the march....fresh water which is why they were beaching themselves in the first place.
