No theyre not yellow star polyps. They kinda look like pulsing xenia but dont pulse and the polyps are thinner. Thx tho. Any other suggestions?

They really look like green star polyps, but the wrong color :/ I know there is a pink variety, so maybe there is a golden one too.

Anthellia, or waving hand polyps. Looks like a yellow variety of them. It is certainly an octocoral (8 arms).

Can you post an actual picture of them in your tank? The pic you linked from on Google is a type of gorgonian.
Gorgonians

It doesnt look anything like most gorgonians. When I type in waving hand polyps it comes up. IDK.

There are a bunch of gorgonians. I certainly don't know much, but I have huge colonies of different kinds of waving hand, not gorgonians. Some of the stems are over a foot long. They all are basically shaped like Xenia, with 8 feeder arms.
