I ordered 3 basket starfish from Salty Bottom recently and can’t be happier. I called and found the service to be very good and personable. The starfish were sent out that same day and arrived in excellent shape. I have been trying to source basket stars for over 3 years now and previously had received stars that were dying in the shipping bag upon receipt. The baskets I got from Salty Bottom were unique (2 were black) and the large one was the biggest specimen I had received to date. They opened and were active immediately and I watched them find their “spot” on different gorgonians with the current bringing food to them. At this point I am able to feed them both planktonic as well as frozen fish food directly with a turkey baster when they extend their arms at night. I am extremely happy overall with the service, quality and speed of shipping and of course with the basket starfish themselves. I would highly recommend Salty Bottom.
