want a starfish

so I was looking into getting a astrena star, a larger one but i have found out it would not survive in my tank, correct? so unless there is a large one that I can keep, does anyone have or know where i can get some hitchhiker astrena mini stars? if anyone wants to give some away, thatd be great :p lol

where were you located again? if you don't mind paying shipping, i'l send you some.
btw, you can keep serpent and brittle stars. they eat meaty foods and can be hand fed. they are cool to watch also.
just not the green brittle, it's a fish eater.

no. sand sifting stars die in most aquariums. they need a huge tank with a deep sand bed to survive. they starve to death very slowly.

the mini brittles are little tiny nothings...i'm talking about a red or black brittle star that will get to be the diameter of a volleyball.
you are pretty close to me. ups ground would be overnight to you, or you can drive up and we'll pull some out of the tank.
meanwhile, what about a harlequin serpent? they are pretty cool-

one would be. sure. they take food from your hand too. pretty neat creatures and very hardy.
your talking about serpent stars, not sand sifters, correct? if you mean sand sifters, no. it won't survive in a tank of that size.
