Can you tell us more about what we are seeing? Is it just a 'scratch' or does it look like a hole? Are there any other marks like that on the body?

Not sure myself, really difficult to tell. Mostly a large scratch. Unsure if there is a pinhole in the middle. Sure am hoping not...😕💔😢

It spends most of its time at the top of the tank but yesterday was hiding in the rocks mostly. When I came home today I was happy to see him back out until I saw this Mark eeeks

The problem with many starfish is that we do not know what they eat. They take months to starve to death if you don't have what it needs. A well established tank with a lot of rock is necessary to keep one of these long term IME.

Just make sure they are never exposed to air. They do good in large tanks with lots of rock.
