Nothing will save that now. Taking it to the store you got it from won't help it. Not to mention the fact that they would be completely foolish to give any money for a melting starfish.

Yeah, once these things start melting away, they are done for.

Correct me if I am wrong but blue linka sea stars are hard to keep and need a very established system. They are beautiful but hard to keep alive

The problem withe most stars is that we aren't 100% sure what they eat. So the "mature tank" guideline is essentially assuming that in a mature tank that a) parameters will be stable and b) what they eat will have grown. But linkia stars are harder than many.

To add to that I believe the only stars that are somewhat easy to keep are serpent/brittle stars and chocolate chip stars. All the rest are difficult.
