Feeding a starfish?
I have a brittle starfish. Not a green one. A banded one. Anyway, I want to be sure that it gets enough food, so I'm expecting that I will need to target-feed the little beastie.
My question is: How? I have tried putting all kinds of stuff on the bottom of the tank, right in front of it. That always seems to make it become very active, but it never actually eats what I have given it. It just runs around the tank for a half an hour or so, and then climbs back into the live rock.
I guess this must suggest that it's getting what it needs. But it isn't like I have a big giant tank with an infinite supply of edible matter laying around, either.
Should I just keep doing what I'm doing, and assume that when the pickings get slim enough on the bottom of the tank, the starfish will become more interested in what I offer?
How often do they actually need to eat?
I have been offering frozen chunks of cyclopeeze and mysis shrimp -- are there better things to try?
