Open brain

Stupid question. How do I get my open brain coral to stay put. Almost once a week I have to move it. I dig a small hole in my substrate and place it In just to try and keep it in place. It then puffs up so much it essentially lifts itself out and always makes a slow move until it is pressing up on the front glass of the tank which is a place I would like it to stay away from. I can't imagine that it is doing this on purpose but it is very frustrating.

Both of mine like the front glass also. I gave up and let them be.

At least it's not all in my head. Goofy thing knows what it likes I guess.

Same mine is also pressed against the front glass. As long as it's happy and healthy I'd let it be.

I would imagine if it is constantly getting it on it then it won't open fully. I get substrate on mine on occasion and it slowly moves it off and dumps it to the side. Granted I have a coarse substrate and not a fine sand.

I didn't think about it when I put it in. It's right by my goby favorite hangout. I think I'll move it just to be safe. Any other tips would be apretiated.
