Hi @octobot, a question about starfish in cold water, cohabitating with bimacs:
Hey everyone, I have two octopus setups, one Caribbean Reef and one Bimac. In the setup with the Caribbean Reef, I have a smaller Chocolate Chip Starfish which has been great at cleaning up the scraps left behind. That has kept the tank really clean and he leaves the Octopus alone (I have read the one horror story of the one that cornered a smaller octopus, but my star is smaller and they avoid each other).
In the Bimac tank, it only has the Bimac and a few tiny hermit crabs. I was trying to research a friendly starfish to add in with the Bimac to clean up after it. However, most starfish have a temp range of 72-80 degrees and I am running a chiller for the Bimac and the tank is at about 65 degrees. I am having difficulty even finding species of starfish that do well in a colder environment and was curious if anyone has any Starfish in their Bimac tank with a chiller to help get me started on which species to research?
