Fromia monilis diet?
I've recently been given a Marble Sea star by a friend who didn't realize that my tank was too young for it. Is there anything I can put in the tank for it to supplement its feeding that anyone knows of?كل نفس ذائقة الموت ثم الينا ترجعون

Macro algae. If there is an Asian grocery store nearby, purchase a sheet of nori. Tear it into strips, and place one every evening rubber-banded to a rock near where the star hangs out. If it's still up on the glass, use an aquarium safe magnetic clip for the nori.

I already have several sheets of nori and a seaweed clip! Thank you very much, Dave.
I honestly can't imagine how much worse my tank would be if I hadn't come to this forum. You guys are all so great.

I was looking into one a few months ago. All the info I saw claimed they are omnivores and look for there food in the sandbed. Food items sich as small meaty items like shrimp and other marine based proteims were advised.

He's currently near the top of the tank, one arm actually groping at the surface water. Put a clip of nori next to him.
Wanna try that algae trick you PM'd me Dave, but does it have to be a special rock or could I just get some normal rock and boil it in some water for a few hours to clear it of bacteria and chemicals?كل نفس ذائقة الموت ثم الينا ترجعون
