Purple Haze placement?

Where should this go?? It was in very low light under a ledge, and was doing okay. Then we moved it out more and it still isnt doing too well. Low light, low flow. 6 bulb t5's. levels are good too!

Read on the Internet that purple haze need moderate to high flow, high lighting. It says top half of tank. Also, Ca++, mag and alkalinity need to all be good. Hope that helps!!

We have started to suspect that since these corals were in the former owner's 34 gallon with only a 2 bulb T5, that they need alot of adjustion to our 6 bulbs
