Starfish. dying or reproducing?

Attached is a picture of my 6 legged(screwed up) red linckia star. This morning when I turned on my MHs I noticed that the ends of two of his legs had split off. One was a clean split and the other had small white egg looking things on it. Not sure if he's breeding or dying? He and the 2 split pieces are both moving around fine but it kind of weirded me out. I tested my water and the only thing that is where I don't like is my nitrates which are only at ~15 ppm. Today is water change day so not to worried about that. Alk, ph, phos, copper, cal, mag , etc. Are all in just about the prrfect ranges. Phos and copper were undetectable. Any help or ideas would be appreciated
