Black brittle starfish hitchhiker, ok to keep in the tank??

First I should say that I'm not 100% sure that it is a black brittle starfish. It quickly hid after being put in the tank. He hitchhiked in on a piece of live rock I bought. From what I saw online I'm pretty sure it is a brittle starfish, just couldn't tell for sure it was black. I can't get any pictures of him either since he hid so quickly. Assuming it is a black brittle, is it ok for a fowlr tank? I'm a total newbie so forgive me if this is a dumb question. Another dumb question... Are they safe to touch if I happened to do so on accident? Thanks for the help!!!

Yep that is a very cool hitchhiker! Perfectly fine for the fowlr and perfectly fine to touch. What fish are you planning on putting in there

I'm not 100% sure on the fish yet, I know my three year old will be crushed if I don't put some clowns in there though. Thank you for answering my questions!! Would the answer be the same if it were a green brittle starfish?

I should edit that to say... If I "didn't" put some clowns in there though. I added two of them today.
