Hitchhiker starfish

I was looking at my tank the other night with my wife and a friend of ours who got us interested in SW tanks. My wife was saying that she thought that we had a HH or something. Our friend then pointed out that we had a Brittle star come home with us from our LFS. It is still hiding under the coral that we purchased. I have been trying to get a good picture of him but he is hiding really well.

Just wanted to let people know, because I was excited.
If I can get a good pic, I will post it.
Right now all we see are legs and they are extremely thin, so we know he isn't a big guy.

Also, is there anything special that I need to be doing in order to keep him alive?

Thats the cool part about getting live rock.!!
No worries, he will scavenge around the tank and get what he need.
