It looks like my old star, I was told at the time I purchased it that it was an Orange conical star, but there is no such thing I could find. I did find one at another LFS calling it an Orange knobby, reef safe "with caution". Mine loved munching on snails, didn't have corals with him, so I couldn't say it will or won't eat them.

They come in different color variations, but that is your star.

Lol, mine was in a fowlr and still ate anything it could, a lot of snails and hermits lost their lives in vein, lol. I will say this, it was extremely hardy, and he took raw scallops by hand, which was pretty cool.

Not only will it eat as many inverts as it can, bu that star has been known to go after corals too.

Oh Flake, why oh why do i do this to myself?

I don't have my identification book yet but i went ahead and bought something wrong again..:-(

Are we sure he's not reef safe? Cause I can put him in my cube i suppose..no corals in there....

I was sooo insistant with the guy today too, I asked him I don't know how many times if it was reef safe.
