Probably not, but it would take noticeable voltage to kill fish and I do not hear any report of that.

I wear hand lotion all the time but none of my other tanks have been affected. What's the starfish toxin?

Here is just one clue. What else could have killed the fish but not the starfish?

Occurrence of paralytic shellfish poison in the star... [Toxicon. 1997] - PubMed - NCBI

That starfish species is not really found in our tanks though. That's not the cause

No clue. If the op had a star like that then it's possible but I've never seen them for sale. Maybe it was some type of invertebrate toxin but I really don't know with the tiny bit of info we have.
