Sand Sifting Sea Star
Average Size of 2″ – 5″ inches.
The Sand Sifting Sea Star (Astropecten Polycanthus) has a striking beauty and serenity to the alternating bands of brown and beige on this invertebrate’s thick, spine-covered arms.
Like other Starfish, the Sand Sifting Sea Star efficiently consumes mass amounts of detritus and uneaten foods, and consume small invertebrates, including shrimp, urchins, mollusks, bivalves, or other small sea stars. It’s nocturnally active and can move large amounts of sand in its search for food. This peaceful omnivore will effectively clean even the largest home aquarium.
