Baby starfish?

Hey guys, my best friend noticed this little guy on the side of my tank today. Is it a baby starfish? I got some snails today and thought it might've come off of one of their shells.

Thats an Asterina starfish. Don't believe they get too much bigger than that.

They can go from 1 to 100 in a very short time. They are a nuisance in my tank.

Watch if you have caraline . I heard those eat all that. Pull them out as you see them. Or you can get a harlequin shrimp.. Those stars make nice snacks!
