This is a little off topic but still with starfish. A week ago i noticed that my chocolate chip starfish's stomach looked to be eatin up. I have one yellow tang, clown, and damsels + 8 Hermit crabs in a 75g. Would the Hermit crabs eat on him. It looks to be healing ok but how long will he make it without eating.

If you mean the mouth in the central disc is gone, then it's not likely the star will survive. Typically a star can survive quite well if it loses an arm or even splits (gets torn) in half but if the star can't feed, it won't heal.

Can you post a pic?

Cheers
Steve
