I've had a chocolate chip starfish for about a month now and today I see that one of his legs has a white film growing on it and the leg is curled. What is the best way to treat a starfish if it is sick if my water parameters are normal?

I don't know of anything that can be done for it.
Unfortunately, most starfish and other echinoderms end up doing poorly in the average marine aquarium; please read my comments on them here:
