First marine tank. Need help with identification

Hi. I'm Malcolm from coventry, England. I've had tropical tanks and cold water for best part of 30 years (I was around 10) as my son has a cold water tank and melt eldest daughter has a tropical tank. I thought that I would venture into marine. Wanted too for years but couldn't turn my back on tropical.
My tank has been maturing for around 4 weeks now, all the chemicals etc are under control and the tank is all set up and ready for my first few fishes in a few weeks. I hope over the next 12 months or so to set up a mixed tank with only a few corals. I'd really appreciate any tips. I've also got a few creatures appear from the live rock I could do with a little advice on. I've added pictures but I'm a little concerned that the I have a glass anemone which I'm told are best got rid of and a lovely little orange 6 legged starfish. Can anybody tell me what it is for definite. Thanks. Click image for larger version

Not sure what the anemone is but it doesn't look like aiptasia. Aiptasia is usually brown with light colored patches.
