I read that many starfish are hard to keep alive, as they tend to starve with a few exceptions and it's better if the tank in question is already established. Hope the lil' guy makes it.

that is an asterina star. hard to kill actually. you'll have quite a few of them eventually. you'll also see tiny brittle stars down the road as well. also pretty resilient as far as starfish go.
yep, henry is right about the rock, and also about transporting it fully submerged to prevent die-off.
as for a "cleanup crew", they aren't really necessary, but any livestock should be added after the cycle.

I see that they divide and multiply rapidly, should I be worried about them eating my coral when it's added? Or just be happy to have some of my CUC already thriving at no cost to me?
Also found some tiny snails on the glass with cone shaped shells...

Just went to the mystic reef and got some chaeto (is that how that's spelled?) and a more wiry, springy looking plant both for the fuge. Plus he gave me some live rock with a frag (?) on it. LOVE that place...

Nice. My lfs hands out cards to prefered customers, 15% off a fish an other deals. I got this kenya tree "frag" for $25. The price was listed at $47 I think. Live aquaria has it for $50

Ammonia-.25
Ph-8
Nitrate-0
Nitrite-0

Guess it's finally started, although hard to tell if ammonia's at 0 or .25
