Coral placement question???????

Quick question: Do corals have to be placed on live rock or can they be placed on base rock? I have both, but mostly base rock still, so I was curious.

I feel confident in saying it would make no difference whatsoever.

That's what I thought, but I have learned not to make assumptions in this hobby.

Thanks.

Also note depending on the coral the placment on the substrate might be best.

It really depends on the lighting requirments of the coral. More light, put it high, less light put it low. Be care about placing coral directly on the substrate. I have a trumpet coral that was very happy resting on my LS until my pistol shrimp dug under it casuing the bottom 1/3 to be burried in the sand. I did not notice this right away and part of it died. i feel terrible. Now I do not have any corals on the substrate.

one more thing to note...
if it is a colony of say...star polyps...the creep will grow out and attach itself to the rock. It'll kill parts of the liverock that it covers. something to keep in mind...
