    lovely Nano, those Zoa's are amazing

    you may want to have a look at bushmans thread, your blue sponge thing looks horribly similar to the one he had which completely over ran his tank .....

    It does look exactly like that blue sponge. It is one of the few sponges that feeds solely off light apparently...

    Sweetnsour,

    IMO I would try to get a positive ID on the starfish you have ( If you haven';t already done so).
    Not so sure about the star only living off algae, so it wouldn't hurt to just check the dietary requirements for the species you have.

    Just a thought;)
