I have 2 CC stars and they don't kill anything. I do see that that quickly find their way to anything dead in my tank. We target feed them both when they come to the top. Between the two of them they don't even eat one coctail shrimp a week. Three is a LOT for one!

These can be pretty distructive in a reef tank. I know a guy how lost an entire colony of xenia to a CC star. They have also been know to topple rock work and damage aquascaping. Make no mistake, this star is not reef safe and, as mentioned, does best in FO or FOWLR tanks.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
