I've had these guys for about 2 years now. I've always drawn a blank at identifying them, any pictures I find that look like them do not state the species.
They haven't grown much lately and have never flowered. When I first brought them home they grew so rapidly, but I did move them away from the sunniest window to make room for other plants that need it more. But they're healthy nonetheless.
They started out looking like spiky pickles and now have them long (I wanna say leggy?) growths all over the place.

I have no clue what your plant is but it's adorable. Can't wait for someone to name it.

Eve's Needle Cactus (Austrocylindropuntia subulata). Moving them away from the window has caused them to stretch. They aren't supposed to be long and leggy. They should look like spiky pickles.

Thanks @Daisyl !
They were this leggy looking when they were in the window, and haven't really grown much at all since the move away from the window.
I'll maybe try to propagate some of the leggy parts in the spring time to see if I can get them to look like pickles again nodding
