Question Serpent starfish loosing his legs?

I've had my serpent starfish for only a week in a half. The first night I put him in he lost a leg. Now a week and a half later, He lost two legs in one night. Will, he survive with just the two legs? How long does it take to grow hs legs back?
The only reason I can come up with that he's loosing his legs is one of the fish are attacking him. i have two tomato clown fish and one sailfin tang. I also put a pencil urchin in the tank about 4 days ago. Do you think the fish or urchin are attacking it?
