friend or enemy?

Looking at my liverock seeing if I have any new animals. ( 40 lbs. Of liverock in a ten waiting to go in a 40 breeder ) I was keeping the bb going with ammonia but changed to using fish food so I wouldn't harm/kill my stars or snails that came in the rock. Now I see I have maybe three shrimp of sorts. When I fish noticed them they were tiny, if I didn't see them move I wouldn't have seen them at all. Well the suckers are growing! The biggest one I can see feelers, legs and the tail curls under. Also have a couple of worms that I can't identify. But the shrimp ? have me worried. I don't want to kill anything just because they gross me out. And I don't want to kill the snails or stars. Not sure what to do at this point, I have a week or two before the rock will be moved to the 40 breeder. Any words of wisdom?

Well I can't imagine them being bad. Might be a good snack for your fish? I get caught up starring at my tank too, I don't even know why I have a TV anymore.
