The polyps look like green button polyps and the ones with the stary look seem to me are a form of Xenia...

The other I can't comment on. I don't know.... They look cool though

The white/flesh colored polyps are clove polyps (Family Clavulariidae), the others are zooanthid polyps.

The leather appears to be a finger leather (Sinularia sp), they are photosynthetic, hence it's reaction to the light.
