How do you

How do you acclimate a Fromia Starfish if it can't come in contact with oxygen?? Also my friend has one in a larger tank but I was wondering how easy they are to keep he said his just hangs around on the glass and he doesn't have to feed it?

I would drip accl it for about 3-4 hours. Just to be on the safe side. Never let the starfish hit the air. When I drip I pit the bag into the sump so the temp stays the same and let the drip start. Over time I take out water, intell all thats left is your tank water. Then I take and let the bag go to the bottom of the tank and tip the bag sideways, this way the star is not exposed to air. Let the temp is the same and has been drip accl to the new tank. Hope this helps!
