picture one i dont know the name but they act like a fishing line and draw food in. they are pretty fun to watch, except they can sting near by corals.
picture two feather dusters, harmless
picture three sponge of some sort? the red is algae..
picture four a pod and a good shot of it. im pretty sure amphipod. they are good in your tank, alot of fish will graze on them as a natural food source.

lol add me to the mailing list :-P

I've never had any issues with the "fishing line things" stinging coral; they never seem to bother anything in my system...
but yea none of those things in the pictures are harmful to your tank

Good luck!

Awesome post, I just saw one of those exact same bugs in my newly established tank, glad someone could get a shot in their tank because I couldnt!
