my tank is 9 days old and cycling I have live rock and hermit crabs hitched a ride home. But today I noticed tinny tiny white things moving all over the back of the tank, but then I noticed two live claims, then came the coolest find a little star fish the size of a dime........ I hope he lives through the cycling.. anyone know what the little white things are they are very small and fast moving.

The white things might be copepods or amphipods. Also the starfish, is it white? If so, then it is a micr-starfish, they are part of the critters that help with biological filtration and won't grow any bigger then a dime.

The copepods and amphipods are food for fish, thus they are good to have.
The starfish are filter feeders, thus they are good aswell.
