can you post a pic of the starfish? some starfish go into an ambush mode, and in this mode they are able to catch fish and shrimp with some regularity.

when in ambush mode the starfish stands on "tippy toes" and when a prey item swims under it. the starfish will drop and grab the prey with its arms in a single motion. this is pretty common with green bristle stars, but any hungry largish central disced starfish can do this.
