Good starfish? Bad starfish? Anyone know?

I found this starfish in my tank, crawling on some zoo's. About the size of a nickel:



Anyone know if it's safe for the main tank? Or should I banish it to the sump, or maybe dispose of it? Any opinions would be greatly appreciated!

With all those brown bumps it looks like a chocolate chip starfish which is NOT reef safe. He would be OK in sump. But be sure because I am not sure.

Yeah, I've banished it to the sump. Better safe than sorry.

The Petco here sells Chocolate Chips like you wouldn't believe. Usually $3.99 on sale. And they will tell you that they are totally peaceful. Almost got one myself, but checked up on them on-line and found that not to be true. Sad to think how many people then end up with missing fish. Is it true they will eat anything they can catch, including your sleeping fish?
