Typical LFS, wanting to close a sale. Very cool, yes. Reef safe, no.

Tell me about it, my favorite fish is an undulated trigger, awesome colors. Not reef safe, and imo not worth setting up a second fowlr to keep. They destroy everything. Why can we not have our cake and eat it too in this hobby?

Ok so I just got off the phone with the guy who sold it to me. He said, yes, the red knob isnt reef safe but I bought a thorny red star, an echinaster.

heres the link for the starfish

FishDB - Red Thorny Starfish

I may be safe here....maybe...

IMO, that is your sea star. Comparing your picture to that, they are identical.

You could just keep and monitor it. If you do catch it in the act, remove it. It may end up being ok.

Hmm they are both separate starfish and yet look identical. The guy said if it did do anything he'd be happy to accept it back, he was very certain about it. Even took the time to look up what the real name was on his order form.

I'm gonna keep reading up on these 2 guys and see what i find. The Thorny is def reef safe and for beginners and is priced close to the $20 that I paid for it while the knobby is really cheap. The guy said he doesn't even carry them because they aren't reef safe.

for what it's worth other than the link you provided I only found one other that labeled the thorny start asteriidae.

Asteroidea (Sea Stars)

otherwise all I got is a mixture of thorny and knobby. Still not convinced of reef safety.
