Question fromia and red Linkia +shipping stars

So I'm wondering two things, Which is easier to care for of, a fromia starfish or a Red Linkia starfish? Do we know? Second question is if it would be wise to keep a starfish in a bag for 30 hours, since starfish are very delicate. (For shipping I mean.)

You need to have a very large, very long and well established tank for these starfish. They will slowly starve to death even if it appears you have enough algae for them. It can take up to a year for them to starve to death.

Can't say on the bag question. If its packed properly with oxygen, and the temps don't swing crazy bad then probably fine?
