Newbie..starting with FOWLR tank

Hi I just started an 8g sw biocube. I already have live rock with a few corals including a mushroim and brittle stars. They came with the live rock. The water is cycled. Ive had the tank for a few days and the temp is staying steady at 80f. Question: if im trying to start with just a FOWLR tank, are brittle stars bad to have with fish such as a goby or blenny? And also, how long until I add a fish if my waters good andso is the temp?

Welcome to AA!

Be sure to cycle your tank before adding any fish. There are numerous threads and a sticky under the 'Getting Started' sections that are good reads.

I got the water already cycled and ready to go. Is having many many spiniods a bad thing? I know they are cleaners, but can having too many affect the tank?

Welcome to AA. I don't think that the stars are bad, but I could be wrong.
