has been running for 6 months. I have learned how to keep it "stable".
There is no substitute for time. Although water parameters may test "good" there is still a lot of nasty stuff in newer systems. Also after LR is harvested, shipped dry, put through a cycle, etc, etc., it takes months for the life forms to return ie. the film algae the star feeds from, no matter how much you have.
Here is a link describing "Tank Maturity" and the processes that produce it. www.talkingreef.com -Podcast episode 12 It's def. worth listening to.

I listened to the podcast. You know if I am able keep this starfish alive I am going to harass you. Yeah..Yeah.. I know. I am not holding my breath. From researching them, a lot of the problem is handling prior to actually receiving them. I may be doomed before I start.

Feel free! I'm glad you listened to the podcast. I thought it was very informative and in a convenient format. Honestly- best of luck w/ the star.
I just don't like to put $$ signs in front of an animals worth. Especially animals like Blue Linckia's that are not/can not be captive bred, not to mention extremely delicate. Therefore "harvesting" has a direct impact on natural reefs. Best of luck and happy reefing .
