a few questions

I just got some more cured live rock off someone I know and I noticed something sticking out of it just a little bit, it has two transparent tentacles and they can sometimes extend up to 1-2 inches, I was wondering what this is? and is it a good or bad inhabitants?
My tank is a 30 gallon, and I also just bought some cleanup crew and a clownfish, for the cleanup crew I got 3 red leg hermit crabs and 12 Astrea Snails, do you think this will be sufficient for this size tank.
Also, the clownfish I got is either a true perc or ocellaris, what is the difference between the two? the one I got looks exactly like Nemo, my little cousin begged me to get it, LOL, I'd appreciate the help, thanks

the transparent tentacles are a good guy =) (not sure what its called but a lot of people have asked about them before). As for a clean up crew, you probably could use a few more hermits! Though that will be up to you. Personally I have been slowly adding more and more to my clean up crew as I see necessary. For my 55 gallon I have 12 blue reef hermits, 3 red reef hermits, 2 emerald crabs, 10 margarita snails, 10 bumblebee snails, 2 huge turbo snails, and 1 unknow snail and 1 unknown crab (both hitchhikers). Percs have a little bit more black around them than the ocerllaris clowns do, so if yours look exactly like nemo it will be an ocellaris (hehe Im pretty sure he was an ocellaris ).

55 gal FOWLR
Euro-reef 5-2 skimmer, 29 gallon sump
3x penguin 1140 ph
2x65 10,000K and 2x65 03 Acintic
40lbs cc/30lbs argonite sand mixture
80lbs keys rock (www.liverocks.com awesome stuff)
25lbs fiji/tonga lr
10lbs lace base rock (now hapily live with lots of coraline growth)
