The yellow finger gorgonian I am familiar with is the Diodogorgia nodulifera. To me a chili coral is different type of NPS.

In my experience there is no particular lighting requirements although lower lighting will inhibit algae growth. They do require medium to high flow. You should see movement of the polyps when they are extended. If the flow is too high it will inhibit the coral from catching food.

Most importantly it has to be fed several times a day.
