Unknown starfish. Is it reef safe?

Friend of mine bought this starfish for their tank, and I've never seen it before and at first glance it struck me as probably not reef safe lol Click image for larger version

Yeah he and his wife said "yeah it sits on top of the corals sometimes" and pointed out an area of green star polyp that the star fish had allegedly eaten away at it. Any info on this bugger will be very helpful. Thanks in advance.
