Unfortanetly, I don't believe it means they are mating. They are more just... flirting. Starfish and many other echinoderms mate in the water column and don't actually "mate" physically.

I would be concerned with two sand-sifters in a 90gal. They are huge eaters and deplete a sandbed of fauna in no time flat...then slowly starve to death. I would strongly encourage you to bring one back to the LFS.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
