Coral Pooping?!?!?

I'm new to the coral game.

This is my first coral. Had it for about 4 days now.

Anyways, is it really pooping? What I going on?

That is a beautiful ultra green torch, kudos. It does appear that it was just expelling waste and looks pretty happy now.

I have and it's pretty common when they are added to a tank. Often it's the coral expelling its symbiotic algae but I don't believe that was the case here, if it was it was minor and looks to have bounced back well. My mushrooms did it when I added them and they all came back, as long as your coral is open it should be fine and regrow the algae lost if that was the case.

I read somewhere that if you light is better then the stores this happens.

I just hope everything goes well. I don't want to be a coral failure.

Well the fact that it is open and has its color is a very good sign it is happy and healthy. If it was dying it would loose its color and just turn to mush.
