placement of my flower pot coral???

i just got this flower pot coral. i have tryed searching for one just like it on the web to find out if where i put it in my tank is a good spot for it to stay long term. the pic is 1 day after i got it.

i have a om squirt shooting water BY it once a min. with a 15k 175 watt halide over it in my 125. seems happy but its new. and are they easyer than the pink ones? and would i loose it if i fraged a peice off it?

I have put mine where there is gentle flow. I had a couple not make it. My third one has been up for 8months and have been spot feeding it. Something I didn't do with the others.

The red/pink ones are much easier than the green ones. I have never been able to make one live, although all my other corals do fine. I placed my red one at the bottom of the tank and have sps, lps all over the tank.


Current Tank Info: 290 gallon AGE reef tank, QT

i just spent an hour reading that and lots of info. to what i can see that my flow may be a little to ruff but i will keep an eye on it to see if it still extends out as far as it did today. plus i feed rods food once or twice aweek and on the other days i do other frozen foods. i think the rods food would be the best for it thanks for the info!


Great stuff====$5 a can
24-48 hour cure
Epoxy to cover it====little as $5 for small projects or up to $100+ for larger projects
and another 24-48 hour cure
I hope you covered it well cuz if you didnt it will start to break down in a few months
sand is another added cost to cover up the yellow.

Pond foams====$9-$15 a can
24-48 hour cure
DONE! You can cover it with sand if you want to (YOU DONT HAVE TO) though but thats added cost again

Current Tank Info: 75 gal under way
