Stalks coming out of green star polyps?
These green star polyps arrived yesterday through the mail and they have had these stalks coming out since they arrived.. Are they dead polyps, or a fungus? I dipped in revive and they did not come off

Yeah those are definitely not part of the Green Star Polyps. I would keep my eye on the spread of the questionable algae, it doers look like a nuisance variety. I have also seen hydroids that look similar but they will have small heads that protrude through the top when they are happy, those are not desirable either.If you want to just toss it to avoid the possible problems altogether I would send you some more for free, I have plenty.
There are way more than there were when they arrived, so if this type of algae spreads quickly, that's what it is. some of the polyps have started to disintegrate as well, so into the trash it goes. Don't want to risk my other corals that are doing great. I'd like to take you up on that offer, but I do want to wait a bit to watch for reappearance of the algae on my other corals (just a zoa frag)
