I wouyld go for the red brittle stor. I have one and he is very cool, they are quite fast and squeeze in everywhere. I also get to hand feed him. I hold out meat, and he feels it and grabs and pulls it in. However, I am sure those stars act similarly.

Brittle/serpent stars are increadibley hardy. I have had my black banded serpent now for about 6 years and a black brittle for 5. If you decide on other stars be sure to steer clear of linkia's. No matter how well the tanks doing there is less than a 50/50 chance they will survive the first year let alone the first few weeks. For more mature tanks I would also recommend Fromia and Tamaria.

Cheers
Steve

Fromia is super cool, but almost as touchy as Linkia IME.
