    Apparently this asterinia starfish is eating on it but it's been dieing for some reason before that! Al l parameters are stable. 120 gallon tank with 30 gallon sump.

    The asterina is most likely eating the algae. Battling cyano means there's nutrients. Numbers look good but are there any big swings? Any other coral issues?

    That asterina may just be eating the algae growing on it.

    If you have a peppermint I'd watch him closely, remove him if the acan gets worse
