The fromia starfish will just starve to death. Skip it. Other than that things should be fine like that as long as all those shrimp are getting food.

Those camelback shrimp are nasty predators that eat coral.

Well I don't have any corals (at the moment) and I find the camels pretty amusing, especially how they kind of shimmy across the rocks. So unless they threaten any of my tank mates I'll probably keep them.
