Almost all of them getting swollen at the same time? And what could be the reason? Maybe Growing?

How is the oxygen level in this tank? Adequate aeration and surface agitation?

I don't know what is the oxygen level!! Honestly, none of what you asked... But, If by any chance you are asking about oily surface, my surface is so clear with no oil at all.

I was asking if you had enough flow in the tank to properly aerate the water. I have seen corals do this a few hours after power outages is why I asked.

Well, what does 'normal' look like??? It looks like things are really low flow and that there are several dead heads in the background.

Yes there is a good water circulation in my tank. But they are in low flow place. I wish if I can upload video clip here to show you how they are doing.

And yes, they are in a low flow place. Do you recommend to move them to a better place where the flow is a little bit stronger?

You could...but I'm still not really seeing what the problem is. They look fine, just aren't flapping in the wind so to speak.
