    Is this a Blue Linka?

    I've had this star fish from day 1, he came with the first batch of uncured L/R, he's lost legs and grown back, and survived the things I thought I wouldn't!!!
    I saw a post recently that classified one as a Blue Linka, and I think that this is one too.
    Unfortunately the photo's a bit dodgy as he's hard to photograph and I don't often see him.

    It's blue with brown spots.
    You're right when i wrote it and read it after, I realized it wasn't a Blue Linka.
    Any idea on what it is?

    Could it be one of the Linckia Multifora (pictured on page 2 of this site http://www.wetwebmedia.com/seastars.htm)? They appear to be mainly white with red, blue or yellow colors. There may be other colour combos.

    I think we need to start a post on all the stuff we can't identify - so others can help us out. It seems like there are a lot of things in this hobby that we don't even know what they are
    -and they put all this money in space exploration -tsk tsk
