Candy Cane coral

I have a candy cane coral that just went into my tank a few days ago. So far it looks pretty good, but I want to know where would be the best place to put it in the tank. I have a 72G with 4X65W PC lighting. I know this is a little low for some corals, but was told the candy cane would be fine. Should it be placed up higher in the tank to get more light? Thanks

El Daiblo, you have a lot more lighting than I do. Do you think I should get mine closer to the surface?

You can attach it up higher, give it a try and watch it.
if it doesnt look happy try another spot.

Trip, you have close to same amount of light as me. I keep mine about 12" below the light. It has definitely grown and seems to be happy. Flow is medium also.
