Trying to get an ID on this guy and the best way to feed him. I've been using reef chili.

Looks like pavona, LPS. Small particle foods like reef nutrition oyster feast and reef roids
Very interesting! Thank you. If it's LPS, should I give it the lower flow of LPS? Or should I keep it up in the high flow area with the other SPS?

+1 for med to high flow, Pavona is SPS, it's also a great beginner SPS too, pretty hardy and comes in some cool growth forms, most species like P. cactus, decussata and frondifera can really only be found in green and have a cactus like growth form, P. maldivinesis is a species that grows in more of a columnar and encrusting form and is typically bright orange, but can be found green as well in rare cases.
