starfish curling up

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm just curious to know why my chocolate starfish sometimes curls his legs up. Also what and how to feed them.

It might be looking for food when it does this. They are not reef safe stars. They must be fed meaty foods, like krill, shrimp pellets, silversides, squid. You can put this on the sand and put the star on top (but never pull it off the rock or glass if it is firmly attached), or you can take a skewer or forceps and put it near the tip of an arm.

My staris a green star and all I do to feed it is put half of a salad shrimp in the tank and push it down torwards him(careful not to scare him away) and normally he will grab it with it's tiny little arms and will move it to his mouth. I normally only feed him once a week.:)
