If you are interested in a blue linkia the trick is the acclimation. for every point that is different from the water in the bag to the tank acclimate for an hour. so if there is 3 points difference, 3 hours. use a slow drip line. once acclimated correctly they can thrive in your tank.

I am not sure about the one point per hour, I've not heard or read that before. When I got mine, I acclimated it for 4-6 hours, here is a pic, I took yesterday, I've had him for a couple of months...

Kevin was this the star that had a little section out of the leg?

Looks like it recovered nicely.

Yeah, if you follow the link above, you'll see the pic I took right after I put it in the tank. The spot is still discolored, you just can't see the spot in that pic.

Thanks!! One day, when I'm more conifdent about my tank I'll have to try a blue star. Your pictures are great.
I ended up getting the red star at lfs it is doing fine so I must have acclimated it ok. I'll post pictures someday. I think, Alf was right it looks like it maybe a red fromia star. It has little black spots on it.

I'd like to get a type of serpant or brittle too, because I like the way they look. Is there a certian type or color variety that would be okay with corals? I notice most stores say brittle and serpants are reef safe. But they want to make a sale, With no refunds or exchanges!
THanks again!
