    #2 I would guess is just small tube worms, aka mini feather dusters, EXTREMELY common. Brittle stars move around, don't have white hard shells, and you usually only see legs sticking out of rocks swinging around trying to catch food when you put some in the tank.

    #1 pretty much a brown hair algae.. probably mixed with diatoms. Snails will eat this right off
    #2 it's not going to get big.. most hardly get over an inch stretched out
    #3 Dunno, just kill it

    ok, scratch the mini feather duster then, sounds more like Spaghetti worms, also very common but use long streamers out of the tube to catch food like a web and suck it back into the tube when they catch some.
