New corals

After having my tank set up for a year, and thinking that I now understand how this stuff works, I decided to slowly get some new corals. I've had mushrooms for six months or so, but it seemed time to venture out.

One of my LFS had this little tiny pulsing xenia, and after doing research I learned that they grow like crazy so I decided to try it. It had already multiplied, and is growing like crazy!!!

I walked into another LFS and found that they are moving. All corals 20% off and buy 3 save 25%, 5 save 30%... Their prices are already good, so I walked out with this bubble coral, leather, and a sand polyp colony. for $75 with tax!!

One problem I keep having is that my clean up crew seems to be too good. I keep waking up to the xenia and bubble coral face down in the substrate. It is getting knocked off of the rock in the middle of the night. Does anyone have advise? superglue?
"Have you tried staples?"-scrooged

I tried to put the bubble high in the tank, because I know it needs moderate light. Can I put it on the floor of the tank. I have an 75 gal w/ orbit 4x 65watt and a strip light.

I don't do SW, but someone we know attaches them to little metal rods that he then puts into holes in the Live Rock. I don't know how he attaches him and wether the holes are natural or man made.

I would glue the rock that the xenya is on, down. Not so sure it's a good idea to glue the bubble. maybe you could wedge it between some rocks to help secure it.
