    wrote a whole page saying that you need to plant, or anchor them as they will fall over, or the current will "blow" it around your tank, when the page decided to bomb out :(

    You can plant them or place them, mine was placed and has grown/ attached itself to the live rock, great to have. I love mine and want together a few more

    Make sure you feed them with planctonic food or they will starve to death
