Sea star and Lion fish compatibility???

I'm getting a 2 yr old (second hand) lionfish from my local aquarium shop in a weeks time. I am perfectly aware of the hazard associated with keeping these fish so I was wondering if a sea star would be compatible?

The idea of the sea star is to keep most of the aquarium clean and therefore limiting the cleaning maintenance required.

Anyone have any ideas?

There is nothing wrong with having seastars, crabs or snails as a clean up crew with a lionfish.

I agree that you should be OK with the star. What type are you planning on getting?
