Not sure, but a 20 gallon is way too small for a chocolate chip starfish. Do you have plans to upgrade or give it away?

What are your water parameters?
How long have you had the starfish?
What are you feeding it?

Water parameters
Ammonia- 0
Nitrite- 0
Nitrate- 20

I’ve had the starfish for probably 6-7 months

I let him eat off of algae, fish food that reaches the floor, eggs laid by my cerith snails (which happens quite often, probably once every 2 weeks), and also the occasional algae wafer I throw in there

They are carnivores so algae wafers are of no real benefit to them. You need to be giving it more meaty foods like shrimp, chopped clams or squid, etc.

I have seen some bristle starts do this but only temporaraly, and I assume this is mmore consistant? I do know they need meat in their staple diet
