Hmmm, how long have you had the starfish? How did you acclimate the starfish? If it's missing it's body?? What are the legs attatched to?

ok see what happened is that i just got a chondellactic anemone and when i saw that the starfish was hurt it was right next to the anemone. i figured the anemone did the damage, the damage was done in between it's legs more on the body of it and i've had this starfish for over a year. i fed it this morning and it ate fine even though it was hurt. what do i do to save it or what can i do?

Keep the water clean and if it doesn't get infected it should heal up on it's own. Regenerative powers of starfish are tremendous
