Problematic white starfish

What will eat these little guys. I have many of them on the glass and they seem to be multiplying quickly. Thanks

Indeed harlequins may eat them but once they are gone you'll need to buy starfish to feed the shrimp. Manual removal works as well. If you are talking about little asterina stars, they are usually harmless algae grazers. Unless you have sps corals in the tank or you've seen them harassing any other corals, I wouldn't worry about them.
