So I got some Caulerpa racemosa today, and now that I have it at home, I found a star fish in the mix. I wanted to put the Caulerpa in my main tank (I dont have a sump), but am unsure if this could be a problem with the star fish. I just did some hunting on the web, and it could be a banded brittle star. Any pros/cons about putting it in the tank?
Thanks, 
Gary

So I did put the star fish in the tank, and of course it disappeared.
Thanks everyone for the quick response.
