My frogspawn is at the top with VHO lights and lots of flow to him. Seems to be OK with other corals

Hyndophora likes lots of flow and as much light as you can give it. I have both the encrusting type and the branching type at the top in lots of flow.

Depending on which you have, the branching type can handle it near the top. The encrusting type will do OK under less intensity. Is your tank a 4' tall since you only have 2 mh's? Normally 400's are used for deeper tanks.
And keep any other corals a good distance from the hydophora. They are aggressive and can kill anything to close to it.

If he`s doing OK where they are then leave it where it is. If not then move it up some and see.
