Question question about a sand sifting star

i have a 45 gallon tank with a 8 inch snowflake eel, toby puffer fish and a golden maroon clownfish, my question is if i put a sand sifting star in here would any of these fish be a problem to it, the puffer being my main concern because ive read that they arnet compatible but the toby puffer isnt your regular puffer fish so i wanted to see if he would be an exception

Any reason you want to get a sand sifting star? A 45 is probably not big enough to keep them feed unless you have a really deep sandbed. Sand sifters have a bad habit of wiping though the whole sand bed and then running out of food. Most of them eventually just end up fading away.
