    I don't think it will kill anything, they tend to move whenever things change in the tank, such as lighting. It will find a spot and get comfy again

    Give it some time. It'll find a nice cozy spot. It just needs time to adjust to the new lights.

    If it touches corals, it may kill them... But once it's found a nice spot, hopefully it will stay put.

    I used to think that I was stressed when my kids was born.Then I got into this hobby,and now I can actually say that I know exactly what stress is.

    thats only when you pay a company to do everything for you, if he wants peaceful and calming buy him a ticket to a public aquarium
