weird coral problem

My paly/zoa colony is like inside out most of the time and just recently started looking like it's bubbling. This is the only colony in the whole system that is having any problems at all. As you can see, the others are just fine.

So overextended? Like they are opening up too much? Sounds like they are getting too much light to me...try moving them lower if you think this is the case

They're only about 6" off the bottom. The rock they're on is on the bottom already. I'm at a loss.

Maybe they are not getting enough light? The more surface area might mean they need more light. Or maybe the salinity is off.
