My Sand Sifter is the favorite of mine among everything else. I'll drop him plenty of shrimp. Could have sworn I saw him eat a snail the other day or something but I don't really know for sure.

Don't they usually seek out worms in the sand et. al.?

Yes they will among others. The problem is the tank size can rarely if ever keep up with their voracious appetite. Even in larger tanks they do not fair well for too long. A star like that can descimate a sand bed in a few short month, tank size depending.

Cheers
