Overview: The sand sifting starfish is a great addition to larger reef aquariums. These sea stars will keep the sand bed aerated and overturned as they consume large amounts of detritus and fish waste. They are one of the hardier species of starfish but as with all starfish – they do not handle fluctuations of certain parameters such as pH or salinity well and these species need to be properly drip acclimated.
