Reef safe star fishs

I'm looking to put some different type of star fish in my 90 gallon. I would like I know from you guys which types would be reef safe.

Sand sifting star fish would work.

My black brittle was 3" when I bought him and is 10" now. And he fits into every little crevice in my rock.

Sorry for a mild hi-jack, but I've heard stories of brittles eating other inverts and slow sleeping fish... How dangerous are they in this regard? I love the way they look and move around a tank, but would rather not lose other creatures to a mindless brittle...

Bristle is the largest thing in my tank. Keep it fed and it won't try to be opportunistic, though I'd assume these stories came from people seeing them cleaning up an already dead fish they thought was fine since it was swimming the night before.

Hmm, saw a thread on here or another aquarium site that had a video of one that jumped a hermit crab that was its size (and alive) and proceed to kill and eat the thing. That video scared me off of them, heh. Wish I had the link to share!

Star serpents are cool meat eaters, brittle are good cleaners.
