Starfish cleaning???

I've noticed every-time I bring home a frag of zoos home from the lfs my starfish finds it within an hour and lays all over it for awhile. It was funny I glued in this frag and the star was on the back glass, I told my wife watch the starfish will be on it soon and sure enough an hour later here it is. Anybody know why??

I've never target fed him. I've had him for about a year now. I was just wondering what might be on the rock that he likes

There is probably some microbes on the rock he is eating. I dont think he will eat your zoas.
