What would the desired placement be as far as light and flow goes? Also there is a mushroom growing on the left side of the branch. the mushroom is a reddish color with a bit of bluish-greenish iridescence.

Flow low to high, lighting low to high. Very easy coral tolerant of many conditions.

I think its important to site that protopalythoa have palytoxin, a potent nuerotoxin that can be deadly to humans. I would glove up when handling them, and be very wary if you have any abrasions or open wounds on your hands or arms. Use a good anti bacterial soap to scrub up after your done. My LFS told me about a guy that got deathly ill after of all things, putting in a plug of tobacco after he got his drip acclimation underway. I guess he lifted them from the bag and then very shortly after had his fingers in his mouth. Just some F.Y.I.

Well, that's definately good to know. I tend to wash my hands after they've been in the tank. Too many invisible nasties in the water to risk it.
