While blue is the common color for the Linckia seastar, they can also be found in purples and pinks in Indonesia. I found this one in the Lembeh Straits of Indonesia in October, 2010. The experts at the Monterey Bay Aquarium told me you'd seldom see this species in captivity because they love to eat sponges and other critters that are difficult to keep in an aquarium.
