    Linkia and clam

    Last night, I watched my orange linkia starfish climb on my clam.

    How delicat must it be. My clam usually closes when a fish, a shrimp or my hand touchs it, or even comes close. A shadow is usually enough to cause a reaction in my clam. But I was stunned to see my linkia walk on my clam, and leave about a minute later without the clam ever reacting.

    Nothing was wrong with my clam. I tested it with my hand after the incident and it was fast to close as soon as my hand came close to touching it.

    I love my linkia.

    My blue linkia does this with a big derasa clam I have too. It's really amazing isn't it? I think they just like to eat algae off the clams shells.

    I've noticed that raising kids & fish are similar: Patience & dedication really pays off!
