Talking Tiny starfish harmless or pest?

I have these tiny white starfish all over my tank. So are they a pest? Because I like them and would like to keep them in the tank.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Are they starfish? I have seen asterina stars in my tank, which everything leads to the 'they'll most likely not cause an issue, but some people say they have eaten their coral'... but I recently found, what I thought until last night to be, tiny star fish on my glass that were barely visible. Come to find out, they're hydroids
