Can you describe it a bit more? Does it have a stem? Is it little?

It doesn't have a stem, it's just attached to the rock, the tentacles kind of come out like star shape, it's pinkish but slightly clear aswell.

Maybe a star polyp? Look it up and see if that is it

I moved the rock earlier and I noticed it does have a stem, clearly visible coming from the rock onto the tentacle-like things.

Yeah it does seem like a star polyp or possibly a xenia.

Time will tell I guess!

Thanks for the help.
