Looks good, those little starfish are called asterina starfish (I don't know if I spelled that right).

Hopefully those asterinas won't be a problem.

We've now to rounded out the clean up crew with five Zebra Turbos. They're certainly bigger than the trochus snails, but hopefully they find enough to eat. The algae has really come under control now, especially with the Emerald Crabs. We may be ready for corals and fish in a few weeks.

I should ask if we are "done" as far as our clean up crew. 16 hermit crabs, 2 Emerald Crabs, 2 shrimp, and 13 snails are in the tank now. I would like to add an urchin and or a starfish of some description beyond the hitch hikers we already have.

I would recommend not getting an urchin. Although cool looking they eat coralline algae and have a tendency to knock frags down.
