That one I would stay away from. Ihad a starfish thjat literally disinegrated over a few days time. I think they need very mature tanks for their diet. And the sand sifter ones need a fully established sand bed or else they dig underneath and die and then contaminate your tank.

If you do get one just make sure you do some research before hand is my best advice. I doubt I will get another one, maybe in a few moths I'll reconsider and get a sand sifting one but for now I'm not sure my 125g can handle one. Plus your tank is kinda small and they can take up alot of space when they grow. Mine would hang out at the waters edge with half its leg hanging out of the water. lol

Maybe I was expecting too much I guess. hehe

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I would also stay away from starfish. A lot of them get 1' in length so that takes up A LOT of space.
