How long have you had that red starfish? (forgotten what they're called) Love the way they swim but I heard they're tricky to feed? I guess with your NSW etc approach you might have better luck, with more diverse ecology in the tank than a normal setup.
Thanks. Yes, very tricky!! They only eat particles up to about 50 micron and then only if the flow is right too.
They need an upwelling, pulsing current.
Here's what I'm currently feeding on a constant drip 24/7...
5 - 50 micron golden pearls
frozen L-type rotifers.
Diatoms (Thalassiosira weisflogii and T. pseudonana)
Powdered Paracoccus bacteria (a feeding response stimulant)
