I have lots of yellow polyps in my 33g with 192W of PC lighting. They grow very very well but only the ones that I feed. I usually just feed them peices of mysis shirmp or NLS pellets every few days or so. Mine are in the top half of the tank in direct light.

Had them for about 4 months, and have 3 times as many polyps as when they started. Well over 100 now and have made several trader frags. Not sure if that helps, but I'd recommend keeping them well fed and under bright light (as high as possible) then they should start spreading.
