I am not sure wht type of coral your are reffering to. Can you post a pic? What are the specs of your tanks? Lighting, size, filtration, parameters. Lando

Sounds like it could be a brain coral. Is the color still good? I do think you have sufficiant light for it. they generally prefer to be on the substrate with mouth facing up. Again, a pic would be helpful.
