I am seeing stars!!

Just spotted a small group of very tiny (1mm) creatures on my front glass. They have a white central body like grain of salt and about 8 or 9 'legs' around this. They aren't moving around at all that I can see.
FYI I did have a small white star hitchhike on my LR when I bought it about 3 months ago but he only had five legs and I haven't seen him since the day I got the LR.
Any ideas?
PS. Too small for a decent pic, sorry.

I just noticed this odd creature on the wall of my tank, he's about the size of the tip of my small finger. Used the link you listed and sure enough there he was. my question now is what do i do with him? will i come home in a few days to thousands of his friends and family overriding my tank?

My specs are: 30 gal xt

millennium w/d filter
4" dsb
55 pds LR
1 fighting conch
2 turbo snails
2 hermits
1 scooter blenny

From what I understand, these little critters are a good sign that all is healthy in ur tank, so I wouldn't worry.
