I bought a Harlequin Shrimp 4-5 or so months ago to take care of the hundreds of asterina starfish living in my 180g. I assumed he would live a long healthy life since I had so many starfish for him. Well, he has cleaned house and I am running low on starfish. I would rather not turn him back into the fish store. Any other options?

You can always feed him. I used to feed my pair a chocolate chip starfish or round up asterina's from local hobbiest.
