nice tank JR, looks excactly like the one i have sitting behind me "empty" waiting for me to get brave enough to start it. Well mainly because I don't have 500 dollars for the LR yet is it a 75 gallon?

Looks like neucrosis to me. Most of the time it comes from not adjusting to the tank. It could be from being acclimated to fast or changes in the water chemistry. Its most common right after they are introduced to the tank.

It is a 55 gal I am currently working on a DIY 180 gal in my garage. The starfish has been in the tank for over 4 months. Will shrimp eat starfish?

If necrosis has started the shrimp will definately pick at the star making matters worse. Most decorative shrimp species however will not be the cause though. As well as acclimation concerns, stars will also do this due to lack of natural foods.
