Here is my Cynarina. Was nothing but skeleton and a little flesh when I got it. Now it's the size of a softball. Forgive the bad lighting, as I was in a rush.

This Cynarina is also the host to 3 sexy shrimp.

How often you guys feed them?
How low of lighting? Do they even tolerate medium par(150-200) ?
Always wanted to try acantho or indo but my sandbed is 150-200

I have seen them do fine in a wide range of different lighting scenarios, though Cynarina will handle higher light and flow far better. I feed mine every other/third night with basic fish pellets, though I want to try the coral-specific stuff and see if t makes a difference.

I also keep them off the sand. It’s the aquarium poop tray and I don’t trust it. If a precious LPS ever gets any tissue damage I think they are more prone to bacterial infection if kept on the sand.
