The Koi Starfish is found in the sunny areas of the reef and reef fringe, constantly foraging for food. In the home aquarium setting, the Koi Starfish prefers a well-lit sandy or coral rubble substrate, with many rocky hiding places. As a juvenile, the Koi Starfish spends most of the day hiding in small caves or overhangs. As a larger adult, it can be seen anchored to the rocks or glass, waving one or two arms in the water, searching for small, free-floating microbes.

The Koi Starfish is generally solitary, but it will tolerate other starfish and amiable fish in the aquarium. The Koi Starfish is very intolerant of sudden changes in oxygen levels, salinity and pH of the water, and cannot tolerate copper-based medications. The drip-acclimation method is highly recommended for all Starfish due to their intolerance to changes in water chemistry.

The Koi Starfish should never be exposed to air while handling, and should be carefully monitored for the presence of a small parasitic snail, Thyca crystallina.

They should be offred small pieces of clam meat or pellet food that can be placed under the Koi Starfish to supplement its diet.
