Those are probably pods, very good for your tank, no worries.....

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

at this stage, they are most likely isopods. i was able to snap a couple pictures of some that were cruising the glass in one of my tanks a while back. if they look like these, they will be present for a short time and then disappear. i don't know what happens to them, if they get eaten or just run out of food but whatever it is, they aren't visible for long.
the starfish next to them is an asterina star and it's probably slightly larger than a BB, for scale.....

Looking at your picture Mr X I feel really stupid now. For a while I wasn't sure what the flakes on my glass were. Now I guess it must be coralline

And that pic is probably 10 or so times magnified.

I'm not sure. Before you buy them see beforehand if you can return them and give them a shot.

yep..it's a macro shot. as i said, that starfish is about the size of a BB, or perhaps slightly larger.
