the coral beauty is picking at him because he's dying. it could have been something to do with the collection, the acclimation at the holding facility, at the lfs, at your house...you'll never figure it out.
the best advice i can give is to not purchase these beautiful starfish and they will stop collecting them. i have only seen a few people who kept them long term, and by long term i mean a year or so.

Alright. Probably should have done my research before i purchased. He is a beautiful starfish though, it's a shame they are so hard to keep
