Many unknown critters on LR...here's 2

I just got some new LR from LR.com a few days ago. There are many things now popping up that I can't really ID. I'll just start with 2 star fish that I saw when putting in the rock and they just barely peek at me out of holes in the rock now.

Star #1: Saw 60% of him. Looks identical the one shown here. However, it say purple and this one is black. The one shown looks black to me also.

Star #2: Saw about 50% of him. Look very similar to the one shown here. However, it's body was a solid color but with banded legs.

I have many other things I need to ID but I'll save that for another post or until I get pics.....they are verrry small and I'm not sure I'll be able to.
ie. possible feather dusters/aiptaisia/hydroids
Just so I can rule out some of them.....feather dusters are the only ones that will pull themselves back in right?

Thanks

Sedentary polychaetes, hydroids, vermetid snails, chaetopterid worms, spirorbid worms, many many types of worms actually. There are quite a few really. The main ones will probabely be either soft tubed "dusters" or sedentary polychaetes though.

As far as the stars go, if they are correctly ID'd, they are fine.

Cheers
