Longspine urchin and serpent stars?
Can I keep a longspine urchin with serpent stars? I know that most starfish eat urchins, but I don't know about serpent stars. Will they be ok together?

The only informations I could find didn't say they would eat them but didn't say they wouldn't. The sources said that the serpent star is a good cleaner and will eat waste and uneaten food and should also be fed a carnivores diet of meat, fish, shrimp and other stuff.

I wish I could be more help but at least I couldn't find anything that said they will go after an urchin.
