I’m very new to the coral game, this is my first time placing one on sand, is this a good idea?

Is that Coral hard, because it doesn’t look like my Kenya Tree, which is soft, actually Kenya is a Leather Coral. BTW, It will grow anywhere in your Aquarium, and can take over, with “Self Fragging.”

No, it’s really soft, a bit weird to the touch. I heard it grows and spreads quickly, but not sure if just casually placed on the sand is a good idea.

looks like a neon sinularia to me, they like high flow and high light, somewhere on the rocks would be better suited.

On “Live Aquaria,” they have it listed as Green Spaghetti Finger Leather Coral. Picture, lifted off of Live Aquaria Web Site. Do you have a Plastic Overflow, or Plastic back, IE AIO Aquarium? You could Snap the Stem off and super glue it to the plastic, near the opening for a Linear Flow. Leave enough room, for upwards growth. BTW, I’ve haven’t had any success Super Gluing to the glass. BTW, Be happy the LFS, Made this mistake.

That name definitely looks right, at my LFS, it’s listed as green finger leather. I don’t have a sump or AIO aquarium. I just have the tank with a HOB aquaclear filter and a HOB Aquamaxx skimmer. I do have 2 power heads that’s positioned on left and right side and pointing towards each other.
