    So yesterday found my red linkia starfish with 2 missing limbs on bottom of tank in bad shape

    Didnt understand-have had him about 6 months

    Now i find my maxspectre gyre not working, and i find limbs of starfish in it

    Since last night he has been patrolling sandbed now as "normal" as can be...overall lost three limbs-

    Is he a goner?

    Sounds like it. Test your chemistry.

    Put up an image if still possible. Star fish disintegrate first, sorry.

    I have to agree with Corailline, it doesn't sound good.
