I would turn them up 10-15% a day until fully on.

I'm no pro just telling you from experience. I know unless you spend a good chunk on LEDs they aren't very powerful. You would want Cree LEDs they are the best. You can build a great led for about $300. www.rapidled.com

If you turn them up too fast you can burn them. But only until they acclimate. But I didn't acclimate mine and it was fine. Supposed to start the fixture mounted high and lower it more and more until you have it where you want it, but you can dim yours so it would work the same. A little pointer that you may use later in life.

I dunno. Never fed corals. You could get some reef fuel, but I have never used it just heard good things, or maybe something called snowflake? It is micro something lol. Again never used anything. I only have ever added purple up. I don't even feed my fish, at least the past four months.

Flow would be my guess. Also placement of your zoas. They can close and "melt" from too much light. If there is not enough they would be stretching like crazy looking for light. In most cases for coral, flow is as important if not more. If everything else is perfect that would be my guess.
