Cabbage Leather and starfish

I picked this up when I went to go get a clean up crew. My girlfriend liked it and it was our anniversary. She was buyin me stuff So, I got it. It looks kinda like a cabbage leather... The guy working thought it seemed like a mix. Whats everyone elses opinion?

Also I found a starfish in the bucket but I forgot that they could be harmful. He's really small right now, and I can't see him. I did get a picture though.

btw... Pay no attention to the algae lol i just updated my clean up crew...

Maybe more like a lettuce. Look up Pectinia paeonia. Then look up Sinularia dura and see what you think.

It does look a lot like the Pectinia paeonia except the color. Thanks for the ID's
