Bubble Coral

Picked up another small bubble coral. I have noticed that it deflates and retracts a couple times a day. Then a little later it will puff back out.

My other bubble puffs out in the morning, and stays out all day, then retracts at night.


Should I be concerned, or is it usual coral behavior?

Give it some time and he will come around. He`s just getting acclimated to the tank.

I kinda figured that, I just never saw one retract and expand over and over. My first one just retracted and stayed that way until it felt comfortable.
