Blue linkias are tough to keep. That pink one looks awesome though. Never heard a Linkia was hardy before. I wish I had $150 to spend on that site

I've read that the oranges are the easiest and the blues are the hardest and reds moderate. I think I'll go with the orange although I like that pink one.

I am thinking of trying an orange as well. Since im growing my linkia for live food I may increase my stock of mother stars. Hopefully i'll have enough to get my nano setup with Harqs by spring!

It's like he's talking to me but I don't understand what he's saying...?!

LOL! Brisc0 that looks like a foreign language to me! What are you putting in your nano and what are you feeding your starfish to!?

Wow! Brisco, is it common for these Linkias to multiply in aquariums?
Phyl, he's getting harlequin shrimp for the nano, and they only eat starfish

HAHAHAH I am sooo sorry. Its been a busy day at work so im doing the front desk and have been in a jabber box 1000 MPH mood today. But yea, MT79 nailed it.

"Wow! Brisco, is it common for these Linkias to multiply in aquariums?"

My buddy Jeff and I both ordered one of these from reefermadness about 5 months ago when they first offered them and they each shed three arms for both of us in totally different reef tanks. The arms have all grown back a central disc as well as about 60% of the other arms. So yea, I will say with some certainty that if you have good conditions these guys will drop arms that will regenerate new stars.

In fact, not to go into speculation, but I got a feeling thats why reefermadness has offered this particular "more rare" linkia for so many months now for only 20 bucks.

In addition to brittle and seepent I have an orange linkia and a burgandy/purple which are very hardy. I tried a blue, but it only lasted about 3 months. All are reef safe as I understand.

Avoid chocolate chip and common stars for a reef.

HTH,
