Bubble Coral placement Question

Hey gang,

I just bought a beautiful bubble coral yesterday and I have it in kind of a temporary spot while I move other things around but it looks and is doing great in the spot where I put it. However, it's right up in the front and there are some bubbles pressing against the glass. I'm leaving town tomorrow for work and will be gone till Friday so want to know if this is going to be an issue or cause damage to the coral. Thank you all for any replies and help with this matter!

It looks very nice. They are flow sensitive, but I doubt the polyps against the glass could care less. They are very easy to grow but the whole colony can collapse if water parameters get out of whack.

Wow, you have a huge colony! Thank you so much for the reply. I'll leave it where it is for now if the glass isn't a huge issue and will maybe just have to move it when it outgrows the spot. Again, thanks for the confirmation and the help!

Just make sure he is not on the sand. Placement there will cause the fish to move the sand around and irritate the polyps. By the way here is mine after 15 years.

Just give them a bit of space as well mine send out sweepers/tenticles but is infront of a massive cataphilia I have so between them they have set there own boundary.

The bubble is an awesome coral but also a very fragile one so care is needed with placement as well as paremeters as already said.

It looks happy in your picture though and as suggested move it away from glass an inch or so

Good luck with it and be good to see some pictures once fully settled and out
