They do this if touched, moved or sometimes if wavemakers paused & restarted.
For a bombproof coral they are kind of prone to moodiness.itll get over it & recover soon

Kenya Tree, is listed on YouTube, as the Coral that will grow in a Toilet. The Dandelion, Crabgrass of the Aquarium. I keep pulling out, which makes it spread more.
