Top left looks like an asterina starfish
Bottom left & right are bristleworms, some people say get rid but they can be a useful part of the CUC as long as you don't over feed.
Don't touch them with your hands as they sting & it hurts!
Thank you, and i've just had a little read on the bristleworms, they sound like nasty little things. When I cleaned my skimmer out some small ones were inside but I just got rid of them. When I feed my fish they always come out of nowhere under the rock... its creepy
They always used to freak me out when they came crawling out of the rock, I never did get used to it.
You can buy traps or make one yourself to try & get rid of them or keep the numbers down, have a look on You tube
The other unidentified pics are polyps, Zoanthid/Palythoa types. A coral. Easily grown and kept.
1. Most definitely an Asterina Star.
2. Some type of Zoa or Palythoa.
3. Same as 2.
4. Bristle worm.
5. Slightly thicker bristle worm.
