Cool series of pics! Maybe he thinks it´s to hard to be a star with all the paparazzi around . Cool starfish though.

Chris, how do you make sure that these elusive creatures are getting enough to eat? Are some of them nocturnal?

this guy isnt going to get much bigger... totally reef safe starfish... i have him just cuz he spends his life moving under the sand so he turns it over and doesnt let it compact down or collect to much particulate... very beneficial...


oh and betty, it feeds off all the "stuff" in the sand
