Explosion of life

My 29 gal tank is in its 3rd month of life and suddenly over the last week it has come alive with new critters

I now have:
1 bristol worm (about 1" long)
1 Asterina anomala (Sort of a brown/grey starfish 1/4 " across)
2 baby turbo snails (Super tiny!!)

I also placed a bunch of boiled shells from Hobby Lobby as hermit replacement shells, the package came with some small white scallop type shells. Those scallop shells are now starting to get splotches of purple coraline on them.

I am not sure I can get rid of the starfish (cant find him again) when I saw it the first time it was hitch hiking on a hermit shell and today that hermit shell is clean where the starfish was riding

The Asterina anomala is listed as a coral eating species (I have no corals)

Do you think the baby snails will survive??

For everything you now see there is a lot more you don't. This is the patient joy of LR.

Do I need to worry about the bristol worms? or the starfish?
I know the starfish is not reef/coral safe.
I do not have any corals yet but would love to get some once I get some better lighting

Thanks,
