The Fromia Starfish is also known as Red linckia and Red Fromia Starfish. The Fromia Starfish usually features five arms but can also have 6 arms in very rare cases. The Fromia Starfish also has multiple black pores on its body surface that makes it unique. The Fromia Starfish has brilliant acclimation power and adapts to changes within a couple of hours. It is considered a reef safe species and can be kept in a reef tank. The Fromia Starfish grows up to 6 inches in size, so it?s better to keep it in a tank of size not less than 80 gallons. The aquarium should be filled with plenty of live rocks so that they can easily gaze off in between their meals. The presence of live rocks would encourage the growth of algae on it and will help them to flourish well. The Fromia Starfish thrives well in a temperature range if 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit. The Fromia Starfish forages the reef to feed on tiny detritus and micro-organisms, thus it helps in keeping the tank clean. Keep the aquarium of Fromia Starfish maintained with stable pH level and specific gravity levels that help them to stay healthy. The Fromia Starfish is very sensitive to the sudden changes in water parameters like changes in oxygen level, salinity as well as pH of the water and especially the copper based medications, even it can result into bacterial infections that may lead to necrosis of its arms, or even death. We advise you not expose it in the air while acclimation time. Other things to remember is that if you are not able to provide it with the sufficient amount of algae, you should feed it with the flaked food and small pieces of mussels or fish as supplementary food items.
