Feeding a chocolate chip star

My girlfriend paid me a visit last week, and she brought with her a chocolate chip star.

So far, I have learned that it eats brine shrimp pellets and freeze dried krill. Looking on the internet, it seems this will eat practically anything. What I would like to know is: how often and how much do I feed it? Clearly the "as much as it can eat in X minutes rule" makes no sense here. Right now it's about 3.5"-4" in diameter.

I would feed it a piece of meaty food, such as shrimp, twice a week.

Thanks for the tip Hara, but how big should this piece be? Fingernail size? I assume a whole shrimp would be too much!

Very important info. Yes about the size of your fingernail I would suggest. I have one in my seahorse tank.
