So I wanted to know people's opinion on the little starfish.. Have you caught it eating your Zoas? I've seen several of the grey ones devour a polyp as it was struggling to stay open.. Or on the side of a healthy one closing it..

 

I like the all white big ones that seem to just stick to the sides but I've been plucking out the grey ones

As you have probably seen in your search there is debate about whether hey are harmful. I have read that the grayish colored ones can be considered a possible predator towards zoas. To me they were more of just a nuisance but a Harlequin shrimp works well to clean them out???? Of course you may have to feed them an occasional starfish when the numbers die down.

I lost my yoda's to the little bastages. If you read this Matt, please put me in line for another frag when you have some. I have been on a mission to eradicate them from the reef. I've cought them on the bam bam's, tubs blues, true red pe's, and several other zoas. My blue linkia eats them occasionally, but I mostly feed them to my dog faced puffer. He eats them like popcorn.
