Bulging brain coral.

Recently I noticed my brain coral has bulging spots on it. They move to different spots along the ridges so it seems like It's never bulging in the same spot from day to day. After they move to a different area the coral looks fine in that spot. Recently upgraded my T5 bulbs to power chrome 22000k actinic+ and 15000k aquablue+ same watt bulbs. Could it be bubble algae under the flesh of the coral or is it growing? The areas that bulge look kind of brown.

It's the spot at 3:00 on the coral.

Ok, so the whole coral seems to be inflating and deflating right now. Looks like an air bubble is trying to escape out one of its mouths.

Nice! Over 24hrs and not even a single idea as to what might be causing this.

I saw your thread earlier, I don't know know anything about brain corals I'm sorry. My suggestion would be to call your LFS see if they can provide any insight. Maybe google sick brain corals see if anything like the condition you stated comes up.
