The sand sifting star needs a larger and well established tank, otherwise it may starve.

I recently got a fromia milleporella (spelling may be wrong) Red Starfish its six-legged and so far so good. I don't know how hardy the little guy will be. I have read the average life span in an aquarium is only about a year or so. Hopefully mine will be happy long-term but only time will tell. its reef safe and doesn't get too large

It cruises around the tank fairly quickly
