Will a Bristle star hurt my fish

Hello I just bought a lot of live rock from a guy on Craigslist a week or so ago when I went to get it he said there was a big star fish in with the rock and he would apriciate if I took it so I did the problem is he is huge he's probably 20" across when he's stretched out he's the only thing in the tank right now. My question is I have two clowns that are ready to come out of the QT tank will this star hurt my clowns or any other fish I put in there here's a picture of him

Those are awesome! Go ahead and keep it. They are reef safe scavengers.

I would keep it. Good for the reef. Like was ask is it green? Their the only ones that eat fish. Google green star serpent or green brittle star.
