Brittle starfish

Hey guys ! Today when I got home I moved my LR, and found a tiny purple/maroon banded brittle starfish! Or atleast that's what I think it is. It matches the coraline on the LR. As my tank is quite new, I was wondering how I can keep it alive, if it's a good indication my tank is healthy etc. Any info Is welcome. Also found was a tiny little snail of some sort

Well, I don't have any fish in it yet, it's basically live rock and live sand. Haven't put a food source in there yet that's why I'm worried, I don't kno if I should? I'm gonna see if I can google the snail now! Definitely awesome to get hitch hikers, can't wait to see if I get more!
