    Can anybody tell me what kind of starfish this is?
    I bought it at the LFS and they said it's reef safe.
    I am starting up a reef right now, and it's left my coral alone for months.
    It's even crawled across them and not hurt them a bit at all.

    Yes, I know his leg is hurt... He likes to crunch himself real good in the corner.
    Also, if it helps at all, the name started with an "F".... I think....

    It looks like a Fromia indica (Indian Brittle Star) not a 100% sure. View Fromia indica
