Adding Blue Linckia Starfish | Reef Tank

In this video i will be adding a blue Linckia Starfish to the 125 gallon reef tank. This starfish is very sensitive to any changes in water chemistry so acclimation has to be slow. I first let the bag float for 30 minutes to get the tempature in the bag the same as the tank. After I add the Starfish to a dripping container and drip acclimate for another 30-40 minutes before adding him quickly to the reef tank. Please Subscribe to be notified of future videos. I enjoy making these videos and hope they will provide helpful information to better guide hobbyist. Everything you see on this channel will be my personal way of doing it. Please Enjoy and any feedback is welcomed. 125 Gallon Reef Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlyrWzDlRs-qZiboMWjYNtQNMLlxiHhVF Zeovit Tank Build Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlyrWzDlRs-rtT_B_gLcyWBWUdbvlBgEJ How To Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlyrWzDlRs-qTgkRrs5wrIE086wL9Gikd Aquatic Log Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlyrWzDlRs-rjb4q8rB1S-ZwnEuCCR2Ga Neptune Apex Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlyrWzDlRs-rwKS3T-gW-eQAT-skoi92m Beginner Guide Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlyrWzDlRs-o8wXkbVMIZUd9eYVfo0P-T 60 Gallon Freshwater Planted Tank Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlyrWzDlRs-ppGwibzUjAkuGqum4mUb64 Tips & Tricks Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlyrWzDlRs-oPvUGif9tzAGJL4xaVv00w Follow me on Aquatic Log: http://www.aquaticlog.com/users/hexdex Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Fish-Of-Hex-389648551215254 Twitter: https://twitter.com/FishOfHex Intro: https://flixpress.com End Thumbnail: http://pizap.com Music: Epic - http://www.bensound.com Music: A New Beginning - http://www.bensound.com

turns out blue linkias can eat asterina stars too! I dont think it is their main source of nutrition but they will eat them, I just got a linkia too:)

+FishOfHex My LFS gave me a free bristle worm to keep because it was big and tjey didnt want it so I took it off their hands, later that night my giany decorator crab came and snatched it and took a chunk out of it but I think worm is in there somewhere alive, those suckers are tough

Mine did the same thing and mine also has a bristle worm living in its feet. Kinda weird but doesnt look like its bothering him.

+FishOfHex my linkia was acting weird furing acclimation, kept trying to come out the bowl like stick 2 of its arms out and every so often Id push him back in gently to the center of the bowl, he is still alive and not injured, he has 1 male parasitic snail (I believe) fused into the center of it but no other snails on the star

How often do you feed the Starfish?
FishOfHex
FishOfHex - 4 years ago
Ill probably just feed him once a week. I do feed the tank a good amount of food so it will have a chance to eat that way as well.

Wishing you the best of luck with your new star fish, looks awesome, we had one a while back and found it quite difficult to feed unlike the chocolate chip we also had, will be interested to see how you get on with it

Unfortunately i can only keep chocolate chip in the sump hes not reef safe and i also dont have a sand bed for him. Hes doing good so far, only time will tell.

I have 2 blue star fish and 3 red ones, pretty easy to take care of, they look for food on there own, I never target feed. That's not how they eat in there on environment , just don't touch then with your hand, it may just be a myth but it has work for me
