I have a orange seastar and it eats them. Not fast enough to get rid of them though.

It's ok, I have hope lol. I might have to look more into a starfish to solve my starfish problem. Maybe my Lfs can help. I doubt it though, I think that might be where I acquired the mini stars in the first place.

Harlequin shrimp devour them. I had hundreds in my tank and it was bugging me so I bought a harliquin shrimp figuring it would take it months to eat them all. Nope, took a week. Now I have to buy star fish from teh lfs or it'll starve...lol What a stupid decision I made. It's pretty cool looking though.

There is a particular shrimp that will eat starfish and that is their primary diet just not sure if it will eat the Asternia Starfish now if I could only remember the name of it.

Yeah those are awesome. But starfish are hard to come by for me. And no place to buy them that's reliable. So the harlequin is probably out for me. My new tank I'm working on might be easier to remove them. I am going to pour my own liverock rockscape instead of buying LR. Way cheaper.
