Question
in my tank there a bunch of tiny creatures about no more than 2cm in diameter that stick to the inside of my tank and move, what are they? they are star shaped but not all of them are perfect stars

Answer
There is no reason to fret about these small hitchhikers, they are simply tiny starfish that are in no way harmful. many of them will not be perfect stars some will lack arms and some will look more like a circle than a star. hope that helps
