The only thing that would have me concerned with that many is that there's obviously enough detritus in those rocks to keep them all happy. The mini stars themselves are certainly not a bad thing, but it may point to a problem with excessive detritus in your tank. Excessive feeding or inadequate flow are usually the culprits there.

Nice pictures, though.
