Stony coral question

I was wondering something about stony corals.

They have alot more "flesh" than I had previously though... I was wondering... if you see a open brain etc "expand" is that a sign of good health??placement?? or does it really mean anything at all... I know when my softies withdraw it's becasue they're being messed with etc.... do stonies work the same way???

LPS corals will typically react the same way softies do. When stressed they will close up and hug the skelaton much more. The happier, the more inflated the flesh becomes. Uniformity and color are also quite important.

Merry Christmas
