    so yesterday i went home after work and like every other day went straight to my tank. low and behold there is a pretty good sized cc starfish sitting on one of my live rocks. now this thing is way too big to have been a hitch hiker for me to have not seen it. now im wondering, where did this thing come from?

    so i call my LFS guy, Jason, and start telling him about this thing, he starts laughing his arse off! im like what the hell? then he says to me, and i quote, "someone dumped 2 of them off on me at the store, so i figured i would dump one off on you and see what you would say when you got home!" so him and my wife had this conspiracy going the whole time! im hoping my DF puffer will eat it!

    until this hopefully happens, what do i feed this thing? how?

    he will find things to eat in the tank and he will eat the scraps of what you feed the fish, no biggie

    They're not reef safe. He should fend for himself.

    It will be just fine eating whatever the fish leave behind. They are easy to keep.
