    I have a 20 gallon tank with live rock, a hermit crab and a green clown goby. I am interested in getting a starfish but I know nothing about them. I'd like one that stays small and won't hurt the newly forming things that are growing on the rocks. Thanks!

    I'm thinking about getting 1 or 2 of these to decimate the exploding population of tiny stars that seem to be taking my tank over slowly. I've heard they will go after any size starfish, but that is the only thing they eat. I don't want to get something to let them slowly starve to death in my...

    I just wanted to get some ideas for some reef safe starfish. My wife likes the chocolate chip stars, but I hear that they don't get along well in reefs. Are there any nice looking starfish that are reef safe? -Chris
