starfish harassing a nem?

Is it possible that my chocolate chip starfish could be harassing a green bubble tip nem? They have been in the same tank for about a month now and I had never seen this before the last 2 days. Everytime I look at the tank the star is very near or ontop of or partially ontop of my nem. What's the deal with this? Now thinking about it this could be the reason my nem hasn't settled down into a nice spot yet. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks

Yeah that little pain is out of the tank now. Lfs would give me 3 bucks. Anyone want him? $5 plus shipping. Whatever you want to use him for I don't care LOL but he's got to go
