    I just got a sand sifting star today, acclimated him for around an hour and then set him on the sand bed. He curled the tips of his legs up and hasn't moved at all. Is it ok?

    Hi and welcome to Living Reefs!

    How did you acclimate it? What are your parameter numbers?

    He's fine now. Actually more active than I expected. Later on that day he was climbing all up the glass and what not.

    I have a Sand Sifting Sea Star also. I get the impression they don't care for the light. It appears after the lights are out. Do you feed it any thing particular? Where I live we have all kinds of sea stars.:thumbsup:
