Nudibranch (Not sure what that one eats)
Stomatella snail (CUC- Ok, but can breed in tank )
Asterina starfish (Don't risk it, remove, ime)

Edit: And while I am typing this, @ReeferWarrant is providing the same answer with just a few more valuable details. :cool:

Look closely to make certain nothing else is lurking on among your items.

The starfish I'd toss, I keep finding those latched onto my zoanthids. The nudibranchs I'd research but assume that would be quite a risk having in the tank for either eating corals or dying by crawling in your pumps/powerheads. The other one I think is a stomatella snail which are fine, need a better view to be sure though.

That's a gorgeous looking nudibranch.

Most likely: Hypselodoris Maritima ?

The Hypselodoris species tend to specialize in eating sponges. That's what they've been documented to be found and eating on.

Do you have a frag tank, frag rack or some other place for coral frags currently?
