Asterina Starfish and Harlequin Shrimp

Postby 402family on Fri May 18, 2012 8:02 pm

I have a 75 gal reef tank that has a population of asterina starfish that has exploded. I am wondering if anyone has any advice on how to get rid of these. I have seen that a harlequin shrimp will eat these, but I am not sure if these will keep populating enough to keep him fed forever. Has anyone experience with a harlequin shrimp? Wondering how many of these little starfish they eat a day. Any experience or advice would be helpful and appreciated.
