    That is an asterina starfish. They are common hitch hikers. It's up to you if you want to keep him or not. Many asterinas end up being predatorial on corals. They can be harmless for a while, but all of a sudden you'll catch them munching (just ask Redline who swore they were harmless forever, and then they started eating his leather).

    If it were my tank, I'd take the asterina out ASAP. They can reproduce very quickly and once they get to plague proportion they can be very difficult to remove.

    I actually have tons of asterinas and they never touch a coral including my leathers.IME,you see them on the glass and rocks because they are film algae eaters.On this board and others,some people will tell you they are good and others say they are bad.The choice to remove them will be up to you.
