Nice picture! Yep, yellow star polyps - Parazoanthus gracilis. As you've noticed, they spread quite quickly!

peppermint shrimp eat yellow polyps?

I ask because i got a rock that is larger than a softball covered in polyps and also have 4-5 peppermints in the same tank. They never seemed to bother the polyps.
