I absolutely agree. Proper acclimation along w/ stable water parameters are most important. My blue link would commonly raise an arm almost completly out of the water, exposing it to air w/ no problems.
Keeping them properly fed long term is a long shot for many aquarists IMO
. I wasn't able to keep my blue link happy longterm w/ over 85-95lbs LR
in the main tank, along w/ ~25-30lb in a fuge. It slowly shrank over two years or so. Link's, IMO
, are best left in the wild at this point. JMO
I wish you the best of luck, they are beautiful animals.
