can you feed a sand sifting star fish shrimp?

LA says

This peaceful omnivore will effectively clean even the largest home aquarium of detritus and left over food. Like other starfish, the Sand Sifting Sea Star will also consume small invertebrates, including shrimp, urchins, mollusks, bivalves, or other small sea stars. As such, the Sand Sifting Sea Star should be actively fed a varied diet consisting of natural food sources, especially in well-established marine aquariums. Otherwise, this voracious feeder will quickly clean your aquarium of detritus and then burrow into your substrate, starve, and eventually begin to decay

what is the best way to feed often? I he buries in the sand?

That`s where there main food source is. The fauna in the sand bed is what they eat. I like to put a algea tab under my linknia`s.
