Blue Linckia starfish are very difficult to keep alive in the home aquarium. Nobody really knows what they eat in the wild, but it is speculated that they eat Asterina starfish, various forms of algae, and other small invertebrates. Regardless of what they eat, most die in captivity. Few have had success with these starfish past a few months, so it would be wise to not try your hand at one unless you are an experienced reefkeeper and have plenty of different things for one to eat in your aquarium.
