Ok, I'm seriously considering buying one (maybe a pair) harlequin shrimp. I've been reading, and on some sites it says that if I have multiple largish starfish in the aquarium, it would eat a little bit on one, and then let it escape and heal, and then start on another. If this is true, then say if I had 3-4 large starfish then I would never have to buy replacement stars to feed it. The question is, is this true?

From what I understand they flip the starfish over so it cant get away and then they feed from it destroying the starfish.
