I just bought a marble starfish yesterday and after it acclimated for a hr last night I put it in the tank. Ever since that night it hasn't moved at all (or very very little). He looks great but just isn't moving. Will he not explore for awhile since he's so new to the tank? I put food in the tank earlier but still no movement. How can you tell if a starfish is dead? Do marble starfish tend not to move much?

THANKS!

if it were dead I imagine something would be eating it. they are very challenging to acclimate, they do NOT tolerate changes in salinity well. sometimes they need hours to really be happy about moving tanks. in this case, it's not uncommon for them not to move for a long time, so keep your eyes on it.
