yes they feed on starfish only, what kind of starfish you want to feed them is on you but you can buy feed starfish at some places so you dont have to buy a $20 starfish for them to eat. i dont know to much as to care or what they can be tanked with but i know this guy on another forum that has 2 in his nano and feeds them a feeder starfish leg every week or so i believe he said.

you could keep a couple starfish in a tank and cut leggs off as needed...... I would rather just feed a whole starfish though.

also check for frozen stars (alot cheaper). a friend has had great success with her pair.
Want stats on tank? check my profile.

Peppermint Shrimp:
Crush two tbs minced mint leaves (no stems) with the juice of two limes, two tbs of sugar and a shot of light rum. Marinade eight cleaned jumbo shrimp for two hours in fridge or overnight (overnight is best). Skewer and salt shrimp. Broil or grill over medium high heat until shrimp become opaque (apx. two and a half min per side). Serve with black beans cooked with garlic, green onions, bacon and topped with a slice of lime.
