Question Starfish

What kind of starfish can be kept in a Reef Tank? I've heard that certain starfish will destroy coral? Are there
Reef Tank inhabitants that are dangerous to Starfish? Can starfish be kept in a non reef tank with just Marine Fish?

generally linkias (blue and red variety) are reef safe but can only be kept in mature tanks. They feed on bacterial film and will perish in newly established tanks.
