Yes this 100%... they don't eat the whole star... they only eat the feet. Asternia don't have enough meat to sustain them.
I hear if you keep more than 1 chocolate chip star (like 6 or something) and always rotate which one looses a leg, you'll never have to buy another star. But I am not a expert, in fact far from it. I've never owned a harlequin because I hate the idea of cutting legs off a live star. You can also cut a whole star up and keep it in the freezer feeding 1 leg at a time.
