Food/Feeding: CarnivoreNotes: The Serpent Starfish or Serpent Sea Star has a sleek physical build and stark coloration. In fact, unlike many starfish common to home aquariums the serpent sea star has long, almost spindly arms that radiate from its central disc. But what this sea star lacks in arm girth, it more than makes up for in color, form and appetite. In fact, the bands of brown that dress the Serpent Sea Stars arms give this member of the Ophiuridae family a unique beauty. Plus, this voracious carnivore can make quick work of any uneaten meaty food it finds fallen throughout your aquarium.
