Ricordea Coral

My new Ricordea Coral is not on a frag and keeps turning upside down, and twice has slipped into different holes in my rocks. I had to use my turkey baster to flush it out. Is this normal? I tried putting in the sand, but it keeps slipping under the rocks. Should I glue it? If so, do I have to remove my rock, that I might glue it to, from the water if using crazy glue gel? Or, can I put glue on the Ricordea wait a few moments and glue it under the water to the live rock?

Ricordea Coral

Put it in a clear glass with a rock and it will attach itself to the rock then you can take it out
Edit:in the tank

Thanks, I researched it before I got it, just didn't realize that it would keep moving on its' own. Twice, it turned upside down. Poor coral. Does it need to be live rock?

No any small piece of rock will work, or you can get a frag disk

I glued mine to a rock. But I've heard they don't always stay

Mushrooms will go where they are happy. They can let go and float to a better place in the tank.
