I place it on front pretty much and watch it drag it into the cave. I feel the same way so I make sure she gets it. I have a few videos on YouTube.

Great video.... My harlequin hangs out towards the back of the tank.. Might try to set one in front and see if it detects it before it roams off...

I put one in a tank overrun with asternas. It cleaned them out pretty well. then I was feeding it CC stars. One every couple/few weeks wasn't enough apparently. As far as starfish regenerating legs, that takes months and months. You need 50 starfish in order to use this approach IME.
A better idea would be to wait until your asterina population is to a minimum, then offer it out to a local reefer with the same problem.
