What to feed a starfish?

Hi all,

I found a starfish in a tidepool today that was drying up. So, of course, I brought him home and put it in my tank before finding anything out about it. I think it's alright though cause I put it in my local SW tank with nothing else but local life (crustaceans) and no fish.

The starfish was going to die anyway, so I atleast want to see if I can keep it alive in my tank.

Do you guys know what best to feed a starfish? I hear they eat barnacles, snails, sea urchins, clams, and mussels- but I don't have access to that kind of food for it. Should I throw him back in the ocean tomorrow morning, or is there some type of frozen food/dried food I can feed him?

Thanks for the help...

Try a little piece of raw shrimp or fish. Do you have a pick?

No, unfortunatley the digital went overboard in the boat...

It's about 6 inches in diameter and rust-colored. Sorry I don't have a pic for you. Luckily, I have plenty of raw shrimp in the freezer. Didn't even think about that...Thanks.
