Default Colt Coral Placement?

Is it ok to put my colt coral in the sand? It is attached to a very thin piece of rock and I have it in my sand substrurate. I have had it for about a week now and It seems to be doing very well so far!
I read a small artical saying that colt coral's don't like to be placed in the sand Is this true? ...................... John

Thank you pdlmsn I have been looking at a lot of pictures of different reef setups and more times than not if there is a colt coral it is in the sand, I just had to get the opinion of everyone here on 3reef as I think that these guys are the best!!! If you have a question all you have to do is check previous posts and if you can't find an answer to your question just ask and these guys are on it in a heart beat ...............................

The fact it has a solid rock base should be cool.

As I recall mine seemed to do well off to the side - outside the lightspot and in medium to low current. So to me, that backs up what pdlman said.

Here's an old pic:

Thank You Matt * I do have it off to the left hand side of my tank and it is in the sand bed in a medium flow area, It seems to be doing fine but I was concerned after I read that Colts don't like to be in the sand...................... *John
