Of all the invertebrates a marine hobbyist could keep in his or her tank, few are as crowd-pleasing as the sea stars. These spineless wonders come in a variety of sizes, colors and textures. Sea stars are elegant in their slow-motion treks through the tank and can be almost hypnotic to watch as their tiny suckerlike feet move them from one surface to the next. Brightly colored individuals can add just the right splash of color to an otherwise bland tank, while a few small stars might accent an already thriving and beautiful aquarium.
