I have a sand sifting star as well in my 55 g. Always in the sand, never on the rocks sometimes on the glass. Hides for a couple days then comes out. I also have a pinkish redish brittle star small hides in 1 rock all the time causes no issues. He was a hitch-hiker.

Linknia stars are reef safe in my experience. Here are mine. They are a little on the difficult side. Pristine water conditions are needed.

Fromias are great. I've had one that's stayed small, never bothered anyone. Beautiful color too.

You're probably thinking of green brittle starfish, which are carnivores and will actively hunt for fish. The average run of the mill brittle starfish are perfectly "fish safe".
