Acropora Placement

So the other day i picked up a pretty choice light purple/blue acropora frag with a symboic relationship. if you look closely you can see a little crab living with it. Before i placed it in the tank i had to remove the crab so i could dip my acropora in a reef dip. My question is: Is my placement of the frag ok? it is at the top of my tank but sideways does it have be perfectly upright?

Looks like a millepora. They like high light and lots of flow. It's fine positioned like it is.

I have it under the marineland reef led in a direct current flow . (the lfs was also keeping this under led.) Additionally, i have been monitoring my tank parameters these past few days( a lot more diligently) since i added it. It is actually really cool to witness the symbiotic relationship with the crab. I will try to get better pictures of it.
