Did yo buy it at Petco or Petsmart? If you did go back to them and ask them. Star fish can be a difficult animal for a salt water aquarium.

I haven’t purchased anything, yet.

My first search pulled up a band from Australia. I was thinking you’re jerking our chain. :) It’s saying they’re very easy to care for and they don’t need a lot of space. They’d make due with whatever you feed the rest of the mates.

@Adirondackwannabe I am more worried about them munching down on some of my mates. :)

More research. They will eat anything they can catch, including slow moving fish, but they have to be really slow. They will eat other starfish, snails, etc.

Okay at first I wasn’t sure if you were talking about a cookie or an animal. Now that I know it’s an animal, I do not have a good answer. If it was for a cookie, I would say OMNOMNOMNOM
