So I just got my bubble coral shipped to me along with other corals. All my other corals are doing fine, but I’ve never experienced a bubble coral before. I know they are very fragile and can pop easy. Mine has yet to open up and doesn’t look very happy. Is this how they normally look or should I be worried?

Yeah, there is only skeleton no flesh. I'd contact the company you bought it from. They can probably refund you if you got it within the last 14 days

Don’t give up on it yet.
It looks bad but it could pull through. I wonder what it looked like when they put it in the bag?
If it gets mushy pull it.

Yeah I figured it may have been damaged. Might be my last time purchasing from the company as this is the second time I’ve received a DOA :/
Was really looking forward to adding a bubble coral to my reef!
