Depends, some yellow polyps (stone polyps) are non photosynthetic and won't care what kind of light you put over them. They would need phyot and zooplankton, baby brine , brine mysis...etc...

TO be sure we would need to know the true latin name of what your was looking to keep. Yesterday you said star polyps. But my yellow polyps and my star polyps are very differnt aside from general color.

Here is a photo of my yellow polyps from a few months ago



Here are my star polyps



The star polyps grow a mat like structure where the others do not.

The first photo I posted yes is very simular if not the same as the one you posted.

They are simply known as yellow polyps or common yellow polyps or Parazoanthus axinellae

If you have the Aquarium Corals book they are found on page 189-91.

Prefers moderate light and corrent, individual fluted colonies ith unconnected polyps.

The second photo I posted is of a Pachyclavularia violacea or green star polyps. When I was in chat with you yesterday I was refering to these. They ca be found on page 119-21 of the Aquarium Corals book.
