    Hello all

    Just looking for a little advice on my tank.
    I have been running my cycle for just short of a month now. Last night I noticed that there are a lot of small snails that have showed up. Is this a bad thing and should I get rid of them.

    I have also found a bristle star fish and another little star fish blue in colour. I am guessing these came with the LR that was given to me.

    There are also 2 little blue and red worm like creatures. I am hoping that these are all a good sign of my tanks cycle going well.

    Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated. And also when can I put in a clean up crew and start adding some coral to the tank?

    Bristle star "fish"? Or bristle worm?

    Can you post pics so we can ID these critters you mentioned.......
