Drew, it works both ways.

What does your tank look like right now? How much space to you have for forground 'scaping?

Both should be placed in the sand bed and will do well there.
Plate coral (Fungia species)

Open Brain (Trachyphyllia)

Brain corals do great on a sandy substrate. (Pics below) Also some leathers do great on the substrate.

I like the brains and plate

Love acons but dam they are $$$$

small pieces of nice colour are going around 80 bucks at my LFS

Any thoughts of my Gonipora being on the sand bed on the left of that picture?

Do I need it on the rock she/he seems happy enough

Nice tank. I love your Manini. That's one of my favorite fishes. Those brains come in all sort of colors and love to be on the sand.
As far as your Gonipora...If it an'it broken, don't fix it. It seems happy enough.
