They look like Zoonthids to me.

Button polyps... also known as zooanthids (or zoos for short)

So, do these guys need to be fed meaty things, stuff besides light? I have read that some of the large zos need a decent amount of particulate food.

They will usually get enough to eat when you feed your tank. You can spot feed them if you like. They'll spread faster.

I agree...if you feed your tank meaty foods like a mush, you will see that they close over the food as they feed, and grow fast.
