    Sand-sifting starfish are interesting additions to aquariums 90 gallons or larger. They can be helpful in maintaining clean sand beds in larger aquariums: however, they will also consume microfauna in your sand bed (such as worms, mysid shrimps, amphipods and copepods). As starfish are very sensitive to salinity changes, a slow drip-acclimation is required.
