What do you mean by Mulch? What do you mean by puffy and what kind of brain coral?

I'm still trying to figure out what you mean by "mulch"???

While I don't see anything really wrong with the coral, I'd try and move it away from that rock on the right. Maybe it's just the angle of the photo, but it looks like that one lobe is kind of tucked under that rock. If it expands and contracts over and over, and keeps rubbing against the rock, it could irritate the tissue or pinch it. Or maybe I'm just looking at the picture wrong.
