I have 2 different types of mushroom corals in my tank... one is near the top and in a stronger water flow while the other is on the sand bed and doesn't have as much water flow... the first is usually more open but more cone shaped while the other appears like yours do in the pictures. Im guessing it has to do with the lighting and flow
