Sandsifting sea star and anenome

Recommended Posts

So i have a sand-sifting sea star and im currently acclimating him with an anemone who is perched on a rock. Spud, the sea star in question, no matter how many times i move him away, keeps going to my anemone. Is he trying to eat him? We spot feed him a couple times a week...should i be worried?

As far as I've seen, starfish will eat anything they can climb on top of.  

 

Quoted from LiveAquaria:

 

Sand sifting starfish food
Like other starfish, the Sand Sifting Sea Star will also consume small invertebrates, including shrimp, urchins, mollusks, bivalves, or other small sea stars. As such, the Sand Sifting Sea Star should be actively fed a varied diet consisting of natural food sources, especially in well-established marine aquariums.
