I'm going to take the plunge someday, when I get the guts to and the funds to do it right

Starfish are pretty cool, and there are a bunch of different types you'll find in a reef, as I'm sure you know. Many, however, are harder to keep bc they need very mature, large sandbeds in which to graze. But it can be done with proper care

Asterinas and brittle stars are two very common types of star, and even in my 3gal I have TONS of them. They're pretty cool, especially when you can view them in a very natural looking habitat doing whatever sea stars do.



One of mine ^

Haha thanks. That one is an asterina, so only about the size of a raisin. The thing is, these guys have been known to eat coral which is why I remove all the ones I can find.

Hmm... I don't think anyone has ever done a just-starfish tank . You could be the first. I'll send you as many as I can catch
