Yep they can detach themselves from their rock if they don't like their current location (too strong lighting or current). You don't have to attach it anywhere but you should. Just wedge it somewhere or leave it somewhere with little flow. It will attach itself within a few hours or days.

You can just find a nice hole in a rock and let it sit in there and let it move on its own. Thats what I did when two of mine came off.

Also you can try putting them with some rubble in a shot glass. Put a piece of bridal veil over the top of the glass to keep them in there and put the glass in a low flow area of the tank. Check back in 4 or 5 days. They should attatched to the rubble.

Mine detach and just go with the flow. I let them go where they want with supervision.

Sometimes you just can't fight it. I let one of mine drift of when I switched tanks about a month ago and I just saw the mushroom yesturday! Its even in a good spot away from my other corals.
