looks like the flow might be too heavy on him, i think its suppose to be enough so that his tentacles sway back and forth but maybe this specific coral is different, not exactly sure

I think you might be right. So he should be just swaying a little bit back and forth? Cause he is swaying pretty good right now. And how often should I feed him?

those don't do very well in closed systems. don't be surprised if you lose it and can't figure out why.
you are much better off with a short tentacle fungia.
btw, that belongs on the sand bed also. you should target feed it as well.
