Favia/Favite ridge expansion?

My brains all have there ridges around their mouths expanded more then normal and wondering why they would do that. All my sps look fantastic with great polyp extension so I can't imagine there's is water quality issues and I have brains all over my tank at different levels/flow/light so that I would think would be out to. Normally all my brains feeding tentacles are fully extended along with my acan lords but now all the brains stopped. Can anyone shed some light on why they do this?

Oddly enough mine are doing it also, maybe they are just full and need to poop.

Maybe lol.. when did yours start to do this.. I know this may be way off but I've heard of crazier. If yours are also doing this think its possible there's an "internal clock" saying its that time of year to breed? I know whole reefs can spawn within a couple days but that's with a shared ecosystem experiencing the same cues..
