    Added LR to new tank. Cycling for two weeks. Nothing died yet... Suppose that's a good sign.

    The first one is an Asterina starfish, not bad to have but I heard they can multiply quickly, the second is a spaghetti worm, also harmless.

    Think the second one is a spiniod worm
    Spaghetti worm got loads of thin long feelers or tentacles, brown in color. Normally in the sand and with the tentacles spread around catching food.

    Don't worry, after 8 years I'm still learning new things.
