QT would have been a good choice. If it was split in the oral disc, you would have ended up with 2 starfish. That's probably why it was still firmly attached. It was hurt but quite capable of regenerating into two whole animals.

I wish I had received this advices yesterday! I truely felt bad when I was removing it from the tank! it was like it didn't want to be taken out. I did a lot of research before taken it out and there's lots of advices to take it out of the tank to avoid contamination of the tank.

mario_07963, that stinks. I have one that must be the exact same species. It is in a tank I really haven't took great care of and it's center disc looks a bit off, but doesn't look that bad. Did you try posting about this in any other forums?
Nano if you come across that article let me know. Talking reef did a special on these star fish a while ago, some good info.

So sorry about your loss. That had to have been heartbreaking for you. How long did you have him? (I hope that wasn't asked yet, and I missed it.)
