Orange Sea Star

I've had this sea star about a month and seems to be doing well. Some days, it seems like 'Hollywood' never moves. And other times, he seems to be cruisin' along.

I thought this was a marble sea star originally, but I received this months issue of Aquarium Fish Int. and there is an article on star fishes. The cover story star fish is an orange star fish, and it very closely resembles the marble. But you are correct, mine closely matches the one in the link you sent me. That site is very good, and I often ID my corals and such with it.
