Sorry to hear about your loss. I too lost one of my cardinals just don't know when because I just noticed that one was missing. Mine only eat meaty foods unfortunately.

I'm thinking they weren't eating anything and when I added my new light fixture (ATI dimmable 48x6 t5) it added too much stress to them

That's very unfortunate. If he is acclimating like that though (big if) I'd have my doubts on the health of his fish anyway

All my other fish I have gotten from him are doing wonderful, those are the only fatalities that I've had

Should I be feeding my sea star anything extra or specific or just letting him scavenge is enough?

What type of sea star and even if it's been fine before definitely start drip acclimating

It's a serpent sea star, fancy tiger striped, I've gotten some drip acclimaters to start with my next purchase

Should just live off the scraps but maybe feed it every so often just to make sure getting good nutrition
