Husbandry

Comaster nobilis (Carpenter, 1884)

Comaster nobilis, also known as the noble yellow feather star, may occur in a number of colour variations. Usually it has yellow arms, sometimes with some black or green and white on the under surface close to the centre. It feeds on on detritus, fitoplancton and zooplancton.

It was previously classified as Comanthina nobilis but further research showed that it was better placed in the genus Comaster.

The noble yellow feather star is widespread in the Indo-Pacific, from Coral Sea and Great Barrier Reef up to Indonesia, Malaysia, New Caledonia and Philippines.
