Sand sifting star

It seems as if something is biting my star, it is missing a small piece of the tip of an arm. Could it be my crabs?? What should I do?

I am not seeing it.. He looks ok to me except that he is on the glass instead of in the sand

I know when on the move they will curl up the tips of their arms.
