Is it normal for a seastar to sit with one leg outside of the water? Doesn't seem to matter where I move it, eventually it ends up at the top of the tank with one leg outside the water.

Definately nothing wrong with it. What it actually does is "skim" the surface for food particles drifting on top....

Oh ok, that makes sense. I thought it was trying to get out, but as I said, always stops at one leg. Just makes it difficult now that I need to do a water change. Don't like picking it up and moving it all the time.

Sigh... something went nuts on the little dude last night. Found him in a couple pieces this morning.

Sorry to hear it, is the head ok? it should recover if it's only damage to the legs.

No, it actually looks like something attacked it. Bite marks all over. I'm betting on the Tomato Clown. Mine is hectically aggressive.
