You will find things for months to come. My best find was a tiger stripe serpent star.

Like Brenden said it will take a few months untill you see a lot of life coming out of your LR. Ive seen stars, shrimps, crabs, anemones, sponges, small corals, mussels, and so on

Even huge macros have cropped up on my rock, months after I put the liverock into the tank. I think that's one of the more fun parts of this hobby.

I found two small starfish recently, the thick legged, hard-bodied kind. They are tiny. I have two chitons, a eunicid worm, a mantis shrimp and many, many tiny snails.
