    I got a chocolate chip starfish about 2 months ago and he seemed to be doing perfectly fine in my tank. Today, he is upside down, curled up and his whole body is pretty mangled up, it looks like his insides are breaking through his outer ''shell'' on one of his arms, 2 tentacles are moving and a few are attached to a small pebble. and on another arm, there are a few tentacles still moving, but other than that he looks dead.
    So, do you think he's dead or dying or something else?

    P.S, I am new to this site and I already posted a question like this, but I did something to it by mistake so I wasn't sure if people would still be able to see it and stuff.. haha, I'm a newbie, what can I say?
