Depends on your tank and lighting. I've always kept mine somewhat high in the tank but if you have uber bright lights you may want to start out lower.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Tank size and current lighting? You may find that alot of your coral will want to be moved at one time or another after initial placement which is perfectly normal. Where you put it now isn't set in stone so be flexible. lol Some corals may want more or less light than is recommended so you will be moving them around, just how it goes. lol I glue my frags to small rock rubble so that they are easily moved as well as have a place to expand onto rather than my large rocks.

That looks like a spongodes. I have them looking good high and low. What are you seeing with the frag that you don't like? What makes you think it's not doing well?

Well, brownish would have me raising it up. Try it half way for a couple weeks and see what happens. Is your fixture at 100%?
