Notes: : One of the more brilliant starfish, the Red Fromia Star is quite hardy once acclimated. More than one individual may be kept in larger aquariums of 80 gallons or more providing there is plenty of live rock for them to graze off of. The Fromia Star will spend much of its time foraging the reef for tiny micro-organisms and detritus to eat.
Maintain stable pH and specific gravity levels to keep this starfish healthy. Sudden changes in water parameters can cause bacterial infections that may cause necrosis of its arms, or even death.
Although it is a scavenger you may supplement its diet with scraps of meaty foods.
