Blue Linka Stars

I just got one of these neat looking starfish and I was wondering if anyone had any advice on keeping them?

A pristine reef system and a prayer. They are difficult. Good luck.

We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.

Yeah, the blue linkias have a reputation as not real hardy. I have had great success with my orange linkia and burgandy sea star though.

Here is some info on the blue though if you do not already have it:


Wish you the best of luck and keep us posted. Keep a close eye on it and if it does deteriorate I would encourage you to remove it early so as to not pollute your system. Stars are fun and there are some relatively easy to keep, but unfortunately this is not one of them.

Good luck,
