You don't feed it. It will take over your tank with lights alone.

Agreed, Green Star Polyps (GSP) is a highly photosynthetic coral. Any additional nutrients it needs can be pulled from the water column without spot feeding.

That coral can become somewhat of invasive, so don't put it on any rocks you don't want it to eventually cover in full.
