I agree with chisel on the first one. The second pic looks like some type of sponge. A good filter feeder.

Ok,thanks again for all the replies

Little update, i think my star fish is in the process dieing.....When i came home today i found him missing one of his legs so he was then a 3 legged star, now tonight i've come home again and he's missing another one of his legs and he doesn't seem to happy. Not sure how he's losing his legs, however the legs he's lost are still moving??

I have another picture for ID This fellow was out playing with the dropped off leg from the starfish when i turned on the lights tonight (then he went straight back to the rock when i turned the lights on)

Ignore the starfish leg at the back, just the gritter looking thing in front.

It appears to be some type of polychaete but I'm not certain what type. I can't see the podia (hairs) very well if there are any... it may be a fire worm. I know how hard it is to photograph these things but really, a more detailed picture would help. It may or may not be preditory, and to me doesn't look like the common bristleworm we normally see. I'd keep an eye on it or, when in doubt take it out and move it to a sump or fuge area if you have one. Sometimes it's better to err on the side of caution with unknown worms.

Hmm...if i see him come back out i'll grab him out for now. Your right they are hard to get a picture of, i took about 30 of it and only about 2 are anything veiwable. Here's another one i got, not resized at all so a little larger.

He didn't really have hairs on his body, however he had some feelers at one end. This is the best pic i can get for you until he comes back out. You can see the feelers/antenae on one end.

I agree with Fluff...Eunice would be my guess...probably not the best thing to have in the tank.
