    i am looking to buy one or two orange or a blue linckia star fish. I do have an electric blue lobster so i really dont know if they will be compatable but i hope so! Anyone know??

    Blue Linkia get kina big and are clumsy bull dosers. The red forma or orange stay smaller so might be better if you dont want your corals plowed over. I love the look of blues but get tired of my turbo snails knocking stuff over as it is and go thru a ton of super glue cleaning up after them. Just a thought before you get one....

    Im not sure on compatability of the lobster tho... Dont know much about them

    I will have to disagree with you there on Blue Linkias Justin. Mine is huge and has never knocked anything over. He moves so slow he just goes around everything.
    Linkia can be hard to keep alive so be very confident you are ready for one.
    I also do not know the compatibility with a lobster but I am guess it may be a problem.

    Yea Linkias are pretty hard to keep long term. I know Fromias are the easiest to keep of any starfish other than the serpent/brittles, and they also have some very cool and unusual color patterns.
