    I picked this guy up from Sea of Marvels yesterday.   I forget what Hung called it, but he said it was reef safe.

    I don't remember seeing any, but I wasn't looking for them. I'd bet he has some.

    They are called Marble sea stars. I've read they don't do well in captivity and sensitive to acclimation. I hope it does well for you though. I wouldn't mind having one.

    Keith: The star was $35

    Sone: Thanks for the info, that's definitely the type of star it is. I acclimated it very slowly (4 hour drip) so hopefully that won't be a problem. So far it seems happy.

    Monty: Pet's Playhouse did have some small clams for $30 each.

    I believe it is a type of Fromia.   I have one too, mine is red with black tips.  I bought mine a little over a month ago and also acclimated it over several hours before I added it to my tank.  The first few days it didn't wander much in my tank but now it is all over the tank.  I hope it does well but I realize that stars have very specialized diets and we often don't provide what they need.  I had an orange linkia for over a year in a half in my tank and then it slowly went in decline.  I was really sad about it for a long time. 
    I also bought another smaller sea star the same time I got the Fromia.

    Fromia millporella (also known as Bali Red Seastar)
    This one is also red but much smaller.  So far so good on them both, but they are both pretty active and climb all over. 
    I hope you have success with your new critter!!
