Flow and light are 2 of the most important things keeping a bubble tip happy. They do move some more than others so that is where you might have the problem with the corals. They need to go in a well established tank. I put mine in the sand next to a rock hoping it would stay it moved up and over a couple of inches but has stayed put so far.

If one is put into established tank with good water,flow& lighting what are the chances of it actually killing any other corals before it finds a spot??

I heard that even if they move their tentacles can touch even SPS and they will be fine. Now, if it stays in a place, I would move the corals away from it.
