I was just wondering about positioning of leather corals. Can they go in where there is a current or should they be where it is more calmer?

my toadstool likes med. to high current. but the current is best to be comming from a powerhead like seio tunze, ect. so it just isn't a stream like a regular maxijet.

I keep mine on the lower part of my tank. They like med flow. Just enoughf to blow food around them. If mine get to much flow the will not open up.

Some leathers like finger produce waste that must be removed by med to strong current. Mine seem to prefer more current. When I moved a power head I noticed my yellow leather closed and would not open until I restored flow.
