For a chocolate chip star, I'm not as familiar with them so I don't know their feeding requirements, i'll let someone else comment on those. For price, shop around the price will vary from site to site, LFS to LFS but typically I think i've seen them for less than $20 US at my LFS.

CC stars are omnivors. If they can catch it most often they will eat it. They are not considered reef safe and are best left for FO or FOWLR tanks. They will bebefit from direct feedings of krill, silversides or other meaty fair. They will not realy ba able to sustain themselves on the fish "leavings" or simple detritus depending on tank size and animal load.

any starfish is an opportunistic feeder. That means, if it can eat it, it will. I usuakky feed my starfish pieces of shrimp from the grocery store. They actually become conditioned, and will venture to the surface when hungry, and extend an arm waiting for its meal to be fed to them.

I've never seen Nemo either...maybe whenb its on video
