What is this growth

So in my 10 gallon on my desk at my office, I came in this weekend to see these little star shaped growths in my tank.
No at first I am like ooo star fish babies but I have no star fish in this tank (yet)
It is a new tank so I have some snails, a hermit crab, a clown fish and 2 small colonies of ZOA
They are small (maybe 1 mm)
Translucent (makes it hard for them to show up with my i phone)
have a denser center and 8 arms or tentacles type things. They do not seem to be effecting any of my levels or the live stock that are in there.
This is the best picture i could get
What are they?

Ps the green in the background is the cubicle wall not algae

In mass. It is pretty common to see a couple show up during the first several months a tank is established before they die out.
