Husbandry

Müller & Troschel, 1842

Ophioderma cinerea lives in reef environments, seagrass beds, on gravel, coral rubble and on mangrove peat banks.

The seastar is variable in color and in morphology, so individuals have been found with 7 to 10 arm spines.

Host of the copepod Pseudanthessius deficiens Stock, Humes & Gooding, 1964
