Blue Linckia Starfish

Blue Linkia Starfish

Also known as a Blue Sea Star

This starfish does best in a well-lit tank with numerous hiding places. Also known as a Blue Sea Star, it will initially spend its days barely visible. As it becomes older, the Sea Star will latch itself onto shelves and caves, reaching out with a limb or two to grab microscopic food. As with all Sea Stars, this species should never be exposed to air, and does not tolerate changes in water chemistry. Drip acclimation is highly recommended. Although Blue Linkia Starfish are known for regenerating damaged and severed bodyparts in the wild, this is less likely to occur in the home aquarium. This species is intolerant of copper as well as high levels of nitrates.
