As stated acclimation is key. IMO a slow drip acclimation of 6-8+ hours is a good idea. The only bad thing is you don't know how the supplier acclimated them and shipping these stars can be touchy. I received a blue and marron from fishsupply a month or so back and even after drip acclimation of 8 hours the blue one dissolved to much in a little over a week. IMO it's the luck of the draw with these stars.

Since this star is not a linkia, does it have the same requirements as one? I would think that since this star grows to about 3", it could be housed in a smaller tank that is loaded with mature live rock. Unless my logic is off, I would think that a star that is 1/4 of the size would, at most, eat half of what the larger linkia would.

Just a thought

This is true. The thing to do is verify what LiveAquaria has stated through other sources. They are often wrong in their IDs and in their care requirements.
