Soft coral like this will sometimes shed their 'skin'. When doing this they don't extend polyps and are pretty deflated. It would be common to see this upon being acclimated to a new tank as it adjusts to things. I read somewhere this could be a defense against possible parasites and disease, though unknown if true.
