You don't need to feed any photosynthetic coral. The light over your tank is supposed to be its main food source. Don't bother with feeding, it can too easily lead to issues in your tank. In terms of getting the feeding tentacles to come out, it can be hit or miss...I have a candy cane colony where some come out and others don't. This has no negative effects on the colony either way.

Double edged sword. Might grow faster and might cause parameter issues which can stunt growth or even coral death. Feeding coral directly isn't even something I try myself.
