RJ Zoanthid

Hi! I go by RJ and I am new to the Saltwater Aquarium hobby. One month ago I finally committed to setting up my own tank after wanting one for 7 years. Attached is a picture of my Zoanthid which has grown since I first purchased it.

My zoas!

I have a 50g dt with 30g sump that gets fed 3 times a week with a mixture of coral frenzy, selcon, a frozen preparation I make and marine snow. I began feeding daily to bring some specimens "back to life" after they arrived and were acclimated but have cut back to 3xweek.
My lighting consists of generic brand LED's with dimmers and these pictures were taken with the blue led's at 80% capacity, white/red/purple at 0%.
For flow I have two 800 gph powerheads and the return pipe from the sump that has an output of 700 gph.
These are zoanthids I purchased not long ago as two large colonies on separate rocks and a few single ones on plugs. The rest are hard to get clearer pictures of since they look up directly at the lights making only sideshots of their stalks possible.
PH 8.1, 0 Ammonia, 0 Nitrite, <5 Nitrate, 0 Phosphate, Ca 430, KH about 10.
Pictures taken with a Nikon D7000 60mm macro lens.

What is the overall rating of difficulty to successfully grow these in my tank? I brought two Mars LED fixtures and my water is 0 TDS. I like these because of their vibrant colors, but at the same time, I have no idea where to place them if i get them (in fear of bleaching them).

I have a buddy that users the 300w Mars Aqua over his zoa frag tank with great results. As long as you keep you parameters stable and keep up with the water change they should do great! Different zoas like different light, but IME low to med in tank is best.

I would love to know what these are. They're very fluorescent under the blue LEDs. It's taken them 3 weeks to start opening (EVERYTHING that I put in at that time and since are open) but I remained patient and just let them do their thing. They look like they will be very beautiful when they finally do join the party.
