Chocolate Starfish

Protoreastor nodosus


The Chocolate Starfish is also known as the Chocolate Chip Starfish. It should be kept in a large aquarium housing mild-mannered fish. It is not reef safe and they will eat soft corals, sponges, tubeworms, clams, and other starfish. It is important to keep in mind that the Chocolate starfish can grow up to 15 inches in diameter, and because of this, it is appropriate for only very large aquariums.

Have had one of these guys for 5 years now and he's still going... even when I let the tank go a bit, he keeps soldiering on. Mine started at about 1 1/2 inches and is a good 6 inches now. Great for beginners!!

This is a great starfish. It goes all over the tank and looks for something to munch on. It goes on my glass and goes up and down. Great Invert for a tank. Very hardy and loves to graze.
