    starfish feeding...

    does anyone directly feed their starfish or do they just get what is left over. I am thinking about getting a red sea star and just want to be prepared. (fromia sp.) What about cleaner shrimp?

    Thanks

    I have tried direct feeding my stars, but do not seem to have any luck but from time to time I do feed my cleaner shrimp and crabs a little peice of scallop.

    Those colourful star are hard to keep in the long run as we still dont know what they eat.

    I have my sandshifter for almost 10month already. He eats anyting that i throw at him.

    I have a green serpent star and I feed him 2 or 3 times a week with pieces of shrimp.
