Sand Sifting Star
Got to of these over a year ago and was told they would never live well still have them they are great in my 100 gallon reef. They move all over the place even come on the glass. Thanks Reefs2Go.

Sifting Star
Nice sized star. Healthy looking and moves around quite a lot. I made sure to only have one and allowed my sand bed to mature and fill with food before getting one. They have a tendency to clean all the food and die of starvation if you try and add to a new system. He/She buries itself just below the surface and slides back and forth cleaning the detritus and keeping the sand stirred up.
