Nardoa starfish falling apart

O I am noticing small pieces of flesh disappearing from my Nardoa starfish. Is it starving to death or disease or maybe something attacking it.still moves around fine, have had it about a year. My understanding is that they Are omnivores

Ok. But it's more like it's losing pieces of flesh. Like I can see the inside of the leg. And it looks like other peices are starting to do the same thing
