this coral ok here?

well i have 2x elegance corals now, the first company i ordered from i thought wasnt going to send it after almost 2 weeks with no replys to my emails or answered calls so i placed an order on another website and i received it monday and was going to call my credit card company to reverse the charge on the first order til yesterday i got an email from fedex saying i had a shipment on the way from said company and the one they sent me was 2x bigger then i asked for lol the question is, is it ok if its squeezed in this corner like this or should i move it? its otherwise real healthy after being in the tank for a few short hours its already fully extended

I keep my elegance away from the glass so it can fully extend and open. You got some nice looking pieces there buddy.

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

I only move it first thing in the morning when it's all closed up. lol I just moved it today cause my clowns were harassing it.

Is there a base? When I bought mine the guy just grabbed it from below and kinda tilted upside down to bag it.

Picture looks like it may be getting to much water flow at that location.I would try moving it again.
