It's a brittle starfish and is pretty good at helping to clean up the hard to get at areas of your tank. Was it a "hitchhiker"?

no i purchased him at the LFS, he comes out when the lights are out sometimes and moves around, pretty quick little bugger. Isn't "brittle" a general category of starfish? Is there a more specific name for him?

Do you have fresh water plants in there? From pics looks like fresh water. But nice, very nice.

I don't think it ate your blenny unless it was already dead.
