I need help!!

Can anyone tell me what this thing is eating my starfish? We have about 5 in our tank and have been told to get them out. We have been trying to catch them but no luck so far. Our starfish is not looking so healthy at the moment so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Looks like a bristle worm. They arent bad, and are good CUC. Try to get it out if you can i guess. Dont touch it without gloves, some can sting

It wouldn't have harmed the starfish. Most likely the starfish was dying or dead and he is cleaning it up.
