Be careful what you ask for. This is a pretty invasive coral.

Would it be ok if you introduced a frag on a single rock in the sand away from the rest of the rock work? Would it just encrust that rock and that rock only? I am also thinking of this as opposed to GSP. Love the motion!

No it'll definitely spread by detaching and floating to a new location. Some people are ok with this, be sure you are before you buy it, it'll be everywhere.

LOL Point taken. Thank you guys very much! Could you suggest any non-invasive corals that have some good movement?

Euphylia type such as torch, frogspawn or hammer coral. Galaxia. All of these can have a potent sting and send out a decent sized sweeper tentacles at night. These are only suggested if you have the proper conditions and light for them.
