Is this a commensal organism, it is exactly the same color as the star?. Or is it maybe a crustacean parasite of some sort...They arent snails, they are lightning fast , i think shrimp or prob crustacean parasite... the star looks perfect but there are about ten of these fast moving tiny flea-like things on it.....???

Linkia's sometimes have parasitic snails that bore into them. The shells can be the same color as the star, so I'm guessing what you're seeing are baby parasitic snails.
