Lionfish and starfish

Well my First sw is almost ready. I know in gonna get a lionfish but my girlfriend said she wants to get a star fish and put in my tank. Im pretty sure I will get eaten but this is my first sw venture and I'm not sure.

Usually lionfish have no interest in stars and generally safe with snails as well.

Lionfish can swallow fish half their size, but I think you will be ok--depending on how big you are.

I don't think it will even notice your starfish. I had one for 8 years and he watched me all the time. Pretty smart for a fish.

You will need to wait a good while before adding a starfish or it won't have anything to eat.
I think there's a paste you can buy to rub on your rocks and glass for them to eat but you should just wait it out.
