Can Carnation Corals move?

I bought a Carnation for my tank. I realize they are extremely hard to keep, but I wanted to give it a shot. I have him in a good location with medium-strong currents and low light. He seems to be very healthy. The other day, I noticed he had dislodged himself from the hole in the live rock I put him in. I put him back in and a couple days later, he was back on the sand bed. Is he doing this himself?

No. The current is pushing him out before he can attach himself.
