purple tang

This is the newest member of my saltwater community. I couldn't pass him up. He was in a cramped 10 gal tank that was beyond dirty. :D

Very pretty fish.
Is that a starfish on the rock behind it?

It is, Brie.
I used to keep one myself. I also have my tank invaded by some bristle stars. They're quite small but nice to look at. I got them from the live rocks that I bought.

Its a sand shifting star fish. Like blue said I have tons of baby star fish that were in the live rock. You never know whats in the live rock till it comes out. Can be good, but also can be bad things.

The only problam things I have seen so for is bristle worms. They will eat your corals when they get large.

I don't see a problem with keeping these inverts. Perhaps only the appearance.
