    The lion is an antennata, one of the smaller species.

    Small guy is a surgeon, though it's hard to see which species because it's so small. Acanthurus dussumieri and A. nigrofuscus are the most likely.

    Not too sure on the star. Could be a Fromia, though it's not one of the usual species. Where did you collect it?

    Could be a Naso, but it's still larval so difficult to tell. Give it a week or two and it'll be obvious what it is.
