    Hi Guys

    I'm really new to marine tanks, I've been running my tank for about six months now. In the last week I've notices these tiny grey star fish appearing on the live rocks. Is this good? Should i leave them? There's alot of them coming up everyday.

    But it sounds like Asternia stars

    they do multiply by themselves. Some guys do have issues with them, but it seems to be more the dark blue grey ones. I got loads in my frag tank and no issues with the corals that I got in there
