I love the orange linkia starfish, I noticed that they have some at liveaquaria.com. (aka echunaster) I have a crocea clam and I was wondering if the two were compatable. Does anyone know?

control-c = copy
control-v = paste

Mac (command is the apple key)
command-c = copy
command-v = paste

Here it is. I do realize what live aquaria says, but I was leaning towards this one because it is easy to maintain and it stays pretty small. I know that live aquaria rates the blue linka as difficult, so I do not always agree with their ratings. I was just wondering if anyone had any opinion.

If the orange is out of the question, what do you think of a purple? I saw they had them on sale at Jeff's exotics. It does not provide much info as to care except to say "reef safe".

I am excited to know how to post a link now. Thank you for your help!

The thing about these stars is feeding them, you gotta know what they eat. It looks like a linckia to me, and linckias eat bacteria and bacterial slime, they need a tank of no less than 100g full of mature LR. If you can provide this, one star should do fine after proper acclimation.

I know they are picky about acclimation, what method exactly do you recommend? I am going to order him soon, but I do not want to do it yet until I know exactly how to do it. 8O

I would recommend a slow drip, there are instructions in the articles section on acclimation. Since you are wanting to do a slow drip 4-6 hours, you'll want to use an airline valve to adjust drip rate rather than a knot in the tubing.
