The Red Fromia Starfish, Fromia sp. Its characteristic red color and nicely proportioned limbs are instantly recognizable. They require a  tank with plenty of live rock and a sandy substrate, constant salinity, away from puffers or other natural predators, and in a tank with plenty of algae and microorganisms for the starfish to eat its omnivorous diet. It is reef safe and will not harm any other species. The Red Fromia can be housed singly or with others; exposure to air should be kept at a minimum. 

I bought this Red (Fromia) Starfish here and to show you how hardy this guy is, he was the most active of 5 fish I had delivered when outside temp in MN was 21 degree out and bag water was at 68 degrees. All survived after 2 1/2 hr slow drip acclimation. He is a colorful little guy to watch darting around the tank. He is constantly on the move searching for food or detritus on the bottom as well as on reef rock. Likes to dart in and out of rock. He is getting much better at snagging Mysis shrimp I drop in before the other 6 fish hog it all, especially my Hamlet Indigo who gobbles everything that moves. A joy to watch.
