Orange star

Would a small Orange Starfish contribute much to the bioload of my 35gal tank?

I added 2 clowns 9 days ago (my first fish after I'd cycled), and a cleaner shrimp 2 days ago. Can I also now add a small Orange Star without unbalancing everything, or would it be better to wait for a couple of weeks?

Does the star count as one of my "fish" I can have in the tank, as far as bioload goes?

Do I have to target feed? Will he eat my cleaner shrimp (he's small!)?? :p

Thanks!

I have 1 . (see gallery). No bioload to speak of. I never target feed mine, she get plenty from the LR and the sides of the tank.

You can target feed if you want. I do this with my red serpent and it is really neat to watch him curl his leg around my finger to get the food. I usually feed him krill.
I don't do this very often because he isn't keen on the light.

If I choose not to target feed, how will I know he's getting enough food?

Well you can try and target feed. If its hungry it will take the food. Mine just never did. Now my sepent stars take food all the time.
