Just received my order from liverocks.com!! Pics inside!

The rock looks great! very colorful and I found lots of life on there...Zack, thanks a lot!!
found three stars, all alive (can anyone identify it?)
some crabs, a brown one and a cool looking white one...it was hard to take a good pic, but maybe someone knows what kind it is?
a spiney oyster or clam, 1 snail (maybe there's more), a bunch of feather dusters that came out once i put the rock in the water, and i found this green little plant like looking thing...can anyone identify it?
as you probably can tell, this is my first sw tank, and i dont know what many of the life on the rock is...but thanks to everyone on this forum, i made it this far!!!

great looking rock! I didn't find any starfish on mine...that green thing is a form of algea I belive. Halimeda or Udotea

here is a link: http://www.reefs.org/hhfaq/pages/mai.../faq_algae.htm

the red thing looks like a type of tube worm that looks a lot like little feather duster. I have a number of them in my tank.

Looks great! The only possible thing I can think of is perhaps not packing the rock together so tightly... but it may just appear that way in the pic.
