starfish not doing well?
this is making me really sad. i had a friend send me a whole bunch of stuff, mostly inverts and live rock, several weeks ago. i knew i was getting something but i expected only a few little things. i was aghast when i opened the huge styro cooler and found at least a dozen bags of *stuff*! now, my tank had just finished cycling and was ready for stocking HOWEVER, i think he thought i had a 40g instead of a 14g. he included a gorgeous red starfish. i am pretty sure the poor thing is starving, it seems to be getting smaller and smaller and is very inactive.
i have called the only two places within 100 miles of me and neither will take him. they both say he will starve in their tanks.
i don't know what to do. i abhor the idea of him dying slowly. i really need some advice as to what i should do.
