    Starfish ID please

    So yesterday I picked up some lr from kio707. Well my kids have been glued to the 10g I got for a quarantine tank. So I lay on the floor belly down with them and my son says look daddy we have a starfish too... To my amazement the kids have found a crab, snail, a few sponges and tunicates. So I am wondering if anyone can id this starfish. I looked online and it says 7legged starfish...

    Possibly an asterina star. Starfish regenerate legs after they are cut off, and they can have ALOT of legs too. Saw one in mexico that had atleast 30+ legs on it
