Its probably starving, sand stars need alot of microfauna in the sand bed,also they will consume a ton of it, in most tanks people don't give the fauna a chance to develop enough, and adding preditory fish and corals, and stars to soon destroys the fauna ...just my opinion..mabie others have ideas..
