Besides seeing one of them doing it, I would say it's the Halloween crab crawling around and breaking the frail branches by accident.

+1. Crustaceans can pose a threat to some sessile invertebrates so you should add them with caution.

those digis are super fragile. I wouldn't worry about it. They will all grow into colonies in no time.

Agreed. I have chunks break off of my coral all the time just from inhabitants bumping into them. Find it and glue it to something, free frag!
