I've been researching sand-sifting starfish, and I want people's opinions and wisdom from experience when it comes to keeping these guys. I've read mixed opinions on them so far, some saying they are a great addition to a tank for keeping the sand clean, and other saying that they will usually starve to death within a few months.
I've got a 90 gallon tank with a deep sand bed. Is there any truth to the whole "they'll starve to death" comments? I don't want to bring home an animal just to starve it. Would it be beneficial, or detrimental, for a DSB? Any advice and experience is greatly appreciated!
All Depends o how long you've had the tank set up for. Make sure your tank has been working for at least 1 1/2 years. Also supplement it with a piece of squid once a week. It would make a great adition
