    Starfish looks like an Asterina star...most are harmless but some do eat Zoa's...Keep an eye on the little buggers ;)

    No idea on the nudi...:blush:

    agreed on the asteria stars, but not sure on the nudi. If it came on a zoa rock though, chances are thats where it lives cause thats what it eats.....

    you will need a better quality pic for a propper id though

    I've got a couple of those yellow slugs, had them ID'd but can't find the link, detritus feeding, harmless to your corals
