Water Flow for Star Polyps...........

I just picked up a small piece of rock that has a nice size colony of star polyps growing on it, but I have the following questions:

1) water flow; do they like low, medium, or high flow? Some are starting to open and they seem to be moving around from the current (no ph pointing directly at them).

2) Placement; do they like low, medium, or high placement in the tank? I currently have them near the top on a piece of rock.

3) Feeding; Is there any special supplementation they require? Or can they survive from what the trap in the water column?

Tank Specs:

125g all glass tank

135 lbs of live rock

Sand bed

Standard cleaner crew

1 Very Large and Fat Yellow Tang

1 Clarki Clownfish

2 Fat Damsels

1 Scooter Blenny

1 Yellowheaded Jawfish

Thanks--------------Hec

No

I've tried all of the above and have not been able to kill them or starve them

Thanks Kevin,
Sounds like they're pretty hard to kill.
