In Glowfish you have to rescue your friends and take them "home" to little mushroom houses. Each house requires a certain number of friends to fill it, and filing the house usually is a requirement for progressing further in a level.

I have found, however, that if I find a secret area, I usually end up with more friends than I have houses to put them in. I can end the level with these friends still following me, but does that mean I am missing out on some more secrets?

Collect as many as you can and take them to the whirlpool at the end of the level. You likely aren't missing any more secrets (whether you missed a secret area would be a level-dependent question) and the friends aren't extra if you are going for score/stars. To get 4 stars on a level, you seem to need to find all friends which is why missing an enemy kill can lead you to get only 2 stars.
