starfish reef safe?

Is there a starfish that stays small and is reef safe? Like silver dollar size when full grown? Thanks in advance for any help.

I would recommend an orange sea star also. They are reef safe and seem to have plenty of personality. LOL

I would not say sensitive but IMO they need a very mature tank of at least a yr old. I`ve had some stars of all colors and they last a few to 4 yrs. The reason is the stableness of the tank.
