Chocolate chip star or not?

A friend wants to give me a chocolate chip star. Ive been researching it and it seems like it would fit it in fine but Ive never had one before so i wanted others opinions.

I have a 75 gallon long fish only aquarium. In it I have:
2 perc clowns
1 blue (hippo) tang
1 dwarf coral beauty angel
1 wrasse

do u think this would be ok to add? Has anyone ever had one and have some advice for me?

As long as there are no corals in the tank your friend should be fine. If there is LR in the tank make sure it is stable. CC stars are notorious for toppling rockwork.

Pretty cool and cheap starfish,it would be an excellent addition as long as there is no inverts in your tank.

Agree, good with current occupents. If you ever plan to add an anemone then get rid of the cc starfish first. I had one that would prey on my anenpme.
