The fish is eating my serpent starfish, slowly eating and killing it, what should I do? Take the starfish out and put it out of its misery

It's eating your star? Have you seen it do this? Creepy. I'd be taking him back to the LFS, pronto.

damsels are mean, but i have never heard of them eating a star! could the star be disintegrating? they do this if the tank is not exactly to their liking. the damsel may just be being an opportunistic feeder. usually the stars are to big for a damsel to even think about making it food.

how many places in the tank can the star hide? if the only place to hide is in the damsels territory then it could just be trying to chase the star out.

I agree with Geoff on this! I had a star that slowing started to fall apart and fish saw fresh food and started to pick at it and I took the star out and put an end to it's misery!:(
