The Chocolate Chip Sea Stars are eye catching and hardy, but they get overlooked a lot because of the niche they live in. They will eat just about anything, including other starfish, corals, clams, etc. Because of their diet, this sea star is definitely not reef safe. Like all sea stars, they could become a meal for fish that are so inclined like some wrasses and puffers. Drip acclimation is always recommended for inverts and this sea star is not an exception, as they are very susceptible to sudden shifts in salinity and pH. They should never be exposed to copper-based medications or air while handling. Even though the Chocolate Chip Sea Star is a scavenger, be sure to supplement their diet with meaty frozen (thawed) foods.
- - Add to an aquarium with ample rockwork
- - For continued health, supplement with finely chopped meaty frozen foods

ACCLIMATION: Avoid exposing new aquatic life to bright lights after opening the box. Turn off aquarium lights prior to floating aquatic life. Allow the sealed bag with your new fish to float in your aquarium for at least 15 minutes (but no longer than one hour) to ensure the water in the bag matches the temperature in your aquarium. A bacteria booster addition can assist with the addition of new aquatic life. Petco offers free water testing in store to determine if your water is safe for the addition of new aquatic life. DIET: A well-balanced diet consists of a variety of flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods, depending on the species. FEEDING: Feed sparingly and no more than fish can eat in 1-2 minutes. Overfeeding can quickly foul the water, especially in smaller aquariums.
