Husbandry

The genus Linckia is known to be creatures with remarkable regenerative power, capable of defensive autotomy against predators and may reproduce asexually: another tropical, pink or reddish mottled with white and yellow species known as Linckia multifora may produce 'comets' or separated arms from the mother individual, which would grow four, tiny stubs of arms ready for growth to maturity. L. laevigata is not an exception for this — many individuals observed in nature are missing arms or sometimes, in the comet form.

Hallo, ich bin mir sicher, dass das kein Linckia ist, sondern ein gelber Fromia milleporella.

beste Grüße
