I assume your talking about a torch (Euphyllia glabrescens) LPS coral. It just may be turning the color it's supposed to be. Their colors can vary.

Torch Coral

A few of my heads of torch is doing that right now. My guess it is a feeding cycle?

Many corals do this when the propagate, but not sure about the Torch coral. I think it was a feeding cycle as it only lasted an hour. It expelled small amount of some nasty looking brown stuff, then redeployed.
