    How did it do in your tank? I've seen these on my suppliers lists from time to time and been tempted, lol.

    They need individual attention to make sure they are getting food - it's not something u can just toss in and expect it to scavenge like other stars. Mine liked one particular spot on one of my returns.. He would stay there balled up and unfurl when he smelled food. I would feed him last (after he unfurled bc he smelled everyone else's food) with a turkey baster. If u don't feed them individually - from what I hear they only last a couple months. I had mine over 8 months before my tank had a mishap and I lost a bunch
