i need some help

i purchased a coral from my local store. he said it was called a leather umbrella. not shur if u guys know what i'm talking about so i'll try to explain. it comes up like a tree and opens up like a cup.not shur if that helps. anyways i put it in my tank on the side of the rock so that it grows upwards and when i did it, it was retracted. now its started to open and it seems like its opening downwards. will it eventually go upwards once it attaches to the rock.
thx for your time.

New corals always require a few days to settle in. Give it some time.

the Koran could very well be the problem. They are NOT reef safe. Many angels are very destructive in a reef.

Would this be the angel or another fish? What are your current water parameters?
