  • Description
  • The Tiger Serpent Starfish is a stunning and very useful starfish. Tiger Serpent Starfish have five skinny arms coming off of their central disk. Tiger Serpent Starfish are mostly brown in color with strong tan stripes.

    Tiger Serpent Starfish reach a maximum adult size of around 15 inches and need to be kept in tanks that are at least 55 gallons in size. Tiger Serpent Stars are peaceful inverts and should not bother many other fish, corals or inverts in your tank. This makes the Tiger Serpent Starfish a great addition to your reef tank.

    Tiger Serpent Stars should not be kept with larger fish that like to nip and eat fleshy inverts including triggers and puffers. Tiger Serpent Starfish will do best in tanks with lots of live rock for them to hide in during the day and then to scavenge for food during the evening and night time hours. Tiger Serpent Starfish will go through your tank looking for any leftover meaty foods. This makes them a great addition to your clean up crew. Tiger Serpent Starfish are very sensitive and need to be acclimated over an hour or two and never exposed to the air.

    Tiger Serpent Starfish are carnivores and need to be fed a diet that is rich in meaty foods. Foods like mysis and brine shrimp, high quality meaty frozen foods and small pieces of fresh seafood will keep your Tiger Serpent Starfish healthy and happy.
