Send a message via MSN to mr_X
Some are hydroids, others are isopods and such. Nothing to worry about as a new tank will have populations of interesting creatures rise and fall in the first few months.

That first pic may be hydroids or a little ASTERINA STAR.

I have read that they can be bad but usually when they run out of food they die off and disappear
Read they have a pretty powerful sting as well. I'm glad I didn't reach in and brush them off like I was going to

All the info I have read is the same. Looks harmless.
