Flower tree or carnation

I went to a new to me lfs yesterday and spotted this little beauty. It was sold to me as a carnation coral but looking online I think it's actually a flower tree. I'm pretty excited about it since nps are quite rare in my area. I actually got the lfs to go down on price on it a bit since they don't have a system that can keep it alive and it was tossed in on one of their orders. It's starting to put it's polyps out but it's got a bit of curve to the stalk. Do you think the curve will grow out or should I tilt it a bit more so the stalk portion goes a little more upright? It's the bright orange thing in the picture. (Ignore the snail it was excited because it was feeding time)

Similar but looks just like the pictures of the orange flower tree corals online. Very intense orange all over.
