Does anyone know what causes those bubbles that inflate like bounce mushrooms? Is it bad?

Those are not lobophyllia. Orange lobos are actually Acanthastrea pachysepta. That’s why they can’t be kept next to and fight with other lobos. That said, I don’t think it’s ‘bouncing’. No one knows for sure what causes it, but it’s speculated that it’s unnaturally intense blue lighting.
