Cat paw coral

Just added my first piece if cat paw coral and very few polyps are out, what can I do to improve it? It's only been in the tank 3 days

As far as fish go I have a maroon clown, 2 reg clown, a saddleback Toby, red spiny starfish who has been doing a wonderful job keeping my tank clean, 5 green chromis. Coral I have a pom pom Xenia and another hard coral I can't remember the name I ams till learning and always ask for easy hardy ones I can't stand when something dies, everything seems to be doing great

The hard coral is sps? If so, if it's doing fine, I would more the Stylo to a different flow area.

I am always cautious he was given to us when I first started my tank. He won't harm my coral right?

I believe the hard coral is a green maldivensis. So I should move the cat paw to a high water flow area?
