You could try a little trick I used to do years ago , get some liquifry and try to target feed it if you can, sounds daft I know but you be surprised ,don't need a lot and twice a week ,
Then keep checking on it ,

Going by what you have said and looking at the picture of the starfish I'd say it's starvation,
Starfish are a bit hit or miss in the home aquarium ,we automatically assume they will eat the meaty foods we put in the tank ,they're diet is mostly things like algae film and other stuff , this you can't buy as far as I know,amputation won't work because it's diet related not desies,
It's a 50/50 on this one I'm sad to say,
You can try separate to a hospital tank and try some antibiotics, don't know what you would use though,
Lfs are good but you need to speak to someone a bit more cleverer ,
Might be worth emailing a sealife centre and see if one of their biologist can help they might be able to point you in the right direction regarding what best to do ,
Good luck and hope it gets sorted,
Keep us posted

Treatment with tetracycline or streptomycin in a quarantine tank can sometimes be effective, but it has to begin soon, as this is often rapidly fatal.

I've scoured the net to try find out something that might help ,unless anyone else has any ideas this is all I could find ,
I'll keep looking for you and try to find an answer if I can .

Hi mate how's the seastar doing,
Just a thought ,
What you could try if it's still alive is to quarantine it still if possible ,
Try feeding it by adding phytoplankton.
You can buy this and it's used as a food for filter feeders.
Now before someone posts something to say it's not a filter feeder or something else to that effect this is drastic measures to try and save the seastar,
You don't have to separate it from the other tankmates as corals etc will feed on this aswell .
I mentioned it as quarantine so that it gets best chance of actually getting food ,
Might be worth looking into ,

Amo manic has a post going at the moment about phytoplankton if you ask on there you may find some possible answers,
It's a long shot but any shot is better no shot.
I hope something can be done to save it ,and it's not to late .
Keep me posted

You could try some small chopped pieces of uncooked shrimp,place one piece beside the seastar/starfish and see if this helps to coax it to start eating .
Good luck

It's not a filter feeder ;)
How about adding a bit of that Brightwell garlic? Maybe even to that small bit of uncooked shrimp? I don't know if it can be added to the tank water or if the food has to be steeped in it.
