Question What is this creature?

I've been wondering for awhile what this creature is. There are several of them attached to the walls and liverock in my saltwater tank and I have no idea what they are. They aren't causing any trouble, I'm just curious.

Looks like a baby star fish to me.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)
