The Blue Linckia Sea Star will stand out while they consume detritus (algae and organic films). Like most sea stars, these have fairly simple needs: consistent food and stable water parameters, and lots of rock to grow algae on. Like all sea stars, the Blue Linckia does have the ability to regenerate (re-grow) any missing arms, in some cases you can end up with two sea stars instead of one. Helpful tips: They should never be exposed to air while handling and gentle acclimation is recommended because they are sensitive to fast water quality changes. Always give them a little supplemental food like nori, especially if the aquarium isn't rich with algae. Do not house with fish that may pick on them as the Linckia will quickly diminish if consistently picked on.

ACCLIMATION: Avoid exposing new aquatic life to bright lights after opening the box. Turn off aquarium lights prior to floating aquatic life. Allow the sealed bag with your new fish to float in your aquarium for at least 15 minutes (but no longer than one hour) to ensure the water in the bag matches the temperature in your aquarium. A bacteria booster addition can assist with the addition of new aquatic life. Petco offers free water testing in store to determine if your water is safe for the addition of new aquatic life. DIET: A well-balanced diet consists of a variety of flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods, depending on the species. FEEDING: Feed sparingly and no more than fish can eat in 1-2 minutes. Overfeeding can quickly foul the water, especially in smaller aquariums.
