The Red Starfish is known for its vibrant red or reddish-orange body with five arms and a textured surface. It can add a pop of color to marine aquariums, but it's important to note that it requires specific care and conditions. Red Starfish are carnivorous and prefer a diet of small invertebrates such as shrimp, mollusks, and small pieces of fish. They also require a well-established aquarium with excellent water quality, proper filtration, and sufficient hiding places.

On the other hand, the Vermilion Sea Star, also referred to as the Vermilion Starfish, has a bright red or orange-red coloration. It has a robust body and short, stubby arms. Like other starfish species, it is a scavenger and will feed on various organic matter, detritus, and small invertebrates. However, it's important to note that the Vermilion Sea Star can be sensitive to changes in water conditions, and it requires stable parameters to thrive.

Both the Red Starfish and the Vermilion Sea Star can make interesting additions to a marine aquarium, but it's crucial to research their specific care requirements and ensure that your aquarium is suitable to accommodate their needs. Additionally, please note that some species of starfish are not suitable for all types of aquariums and may require more advanced care, so it's always important to consult with an experienced aquarium hobbyist or marine specialist before introducing starfish to your tank.
