I don't think it is a open brain because I have a open brain coral that looks very different from these and at night time year corals get small white tentacles round their inner outside.

I think it might be lobophyllia one of the has 4 mouths on the inner part of it and at night it gets these white little tentacles around the outside of the inner part of it.
