Life after Sand Shifting Starfish

My sand shifting starfish recently died. He basically decayed to nothing over a period of about 9 months. I only have a small tank (a RSM 130) and a shallow sand bed.

I would recommend to anyone who has doubts about getting one is to NOT!! They will die and they will die slowly.

Anyway, my question is...

Now he has decimated my sand bed, how long will it take for it to regenerate into a healthy platform again? If the star has eaten •everything• , eggs and all, will be sterile for ever more?
