Question Any suggestions for placement of Trumpet coral?

Just got a big one today, and it is basically a 1/2" stalk with 8-10 branches off of it. It is not attached to anything at its base.

I tried to place it in the sandbed, but it just fell over. It looks awkward sitting in a hole in the rock.

Any ideas on how to get it to stay up? How high can I bury the skeletal part?

You can completely bury the skeletal part, just be sure not to bury any of the live coral tissue.

You can also try wedging the coral skeleton in a live rock crevice securing it with epoxy or something similar.

You can also break up the branches (without damaging the live coral) and relocate them in various places in the tank.
