It's an Astrina star fish. We have loads in our tank. Harmless unless you want leather corals so I have been told.

Yes they will be fine, you will find with Astrina stars they multiply by splitting themselves in half both halves then grow into a full starfish before splitting again.

I was told that by a guy at the lfs we don't have leather corals so it doesn't bother us. My friend has them tho and he is the same as you had no trouble.
