Little water flow. Water flow makes the bubble coral retract if too much. Just light indirect water flow.

I dont think that is a bubble coral. It looks like an anchor or hammer coral. Here is mine
The bubble coral has bigger round bubbles. I`m sure this is an anchor coral

I agree its not a bubble, looks like a pink tipped frog spawn to me. they like it on the rocks better then the sand bed. Years?? they grow fast in the right conditions, you will need to keep your alkalinity and calcium levels up where they need to be.
