blue starfish

I got a blue starfish (linkia) from a friend 2 days ago, and it doesn't seem to be moving around at all, iy's suction cups come out and it's holding on to the glass of the aquarium but it's just not moving! I did a 4 hour drip when i first put it in the tank. Its body seems really firm, and looks nice and blue with no noticible damage, my water is fine I checked it yesterday. Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated, I'd hate to see this thing die! Any special food they seem to really like?..........thanks in adavance

There isn't really any prepared food to feed them. It is believed they eat types of food/bacteria that grows on LR. Most suggest a minimum of 100lbs of LR to house a linkia star. I wouldn't worry too much about it not moving, if they find a good food source they can stay there for several days.
