    Where would this coral prefer to be mounted ? If I leave it on the substrate will it grow on to the sand ?

    I have one, I have tried it on the substrate and then also midway up the tank under 150w MH's. It seemed to be happy in both locations. I'm not sure it would grow onto the sand, from what I have seen it creates or expands on it's own skeleton.

    Awesome coral there Warr - why not put him at a slight incline half on a rock half on the sand - then keep on checking which side HE chooses then try and settle him there - did that with most of my unmounted stuff and let them choose
