need some help

I recently bought a coral that looks like a willow tree and I put it in the tank, It isnt standing up, is it because my powerhead is blowing on it the wrong way, or is it positioned the wrong way?? I also bought some button polyps (the green centered one) and they are doing fine Plz Help Me, Thank You

Well it's good to see you researched your coral before buying it. Try to research the coral before you buy it so you know its requirements and care, also why are you adding corals when your cycle hasn't completed?

Just to bring you up on when ive last heard from teen. Added fish the 1st day, and added bio-spira which instantly cycled it. No LR and bad PH said he/she was going to use buffers to keep it up, and skip the LR. I believe the tanks been set up for 2 weeks now, obviously ready for corals!!!!!!! :|
