Question White spots on my chocolate chip cookie star!

Ive had my chocolate chip cookie star fish for jst about a month and it has been very active. About 3 days ago I noticed that the cookie just hangs out at the waters surface with its tentacles out of the water, Its starting to ger alot of discoloration (whiteish spots) on its body. I try to feed it by placing food under it but it just climbs up to the surface once more ignoring the food.

Whats happening with the star

I also have a tiny orange star and it seems happy doing laps around 1 rock it hasnt left that rock since I put it close to it, I bought them both at the same time.

Ill post pics as soon as the star comes out from behind the skimmer pump

Moving this to the sick fish and coral forum. How about some water test results? Maybe some high nitrates?
