Blue Linckia Starfish for Sale - The Blue Linckia Sea Star (Linckia laevigata), is also known as the Comet Sea Star, Blue Sea Star, or Blue Starfish.

The Blue Linckia is one of the harder to keep starfish, as they are very sensitive to changes in pH, temperature, and salinity changes. The drip acclimation process is highly recommended for all sea stars due to their intolerance of change in water chemistry.

Blue Linckia Starfish should only be introduced to a well established aquarium so very little needs to be done to supplement them. This starfish does best in a well-lit tank with numerous hiding places and as a juvenile, the Blue Linckia Sea Star spends most of the day hiding in small caves or overhangs. As it becomes older, the Blue Linckia Starfish will latch itself onto shelves and caves, reaching out with a limb or two to grab microscopic food.

In the wild, the Blue Linckia Sea Star is found in the sunny areas of the reef and reef fringe, constantly foraging for food. In the home aquarium setting, the Blue Linckia Sea Star prefers a well-lit sandy or coral rubble substrate, with many rocky hiding places.
