toadstool coral leaning

so we got 2 toadstool corals. both are attached to the same rock. both were standing straight up when we put them in about 3 weeks ago. now the bigger one is leaning to the right and the smaller is leaning towards the left. I did some reading. I read about them leaning towards the light. leaning towards or aways from water turbulence and few other things. But all those thing seem to indicate they would lean the same way not towards each other. Other then leaning over( the small one is touching the rock now) they seem fine. both have shedded. both open daily. any thoughts?
Oh on the lighting we give them 8 hrs of lights then 2 hours of blue light to put them to bed.

Well, you haven’t really told us anything about your system, what the lighting is, tank size, current parameters...so on...but leather corals will do this from time to time. They need to ‘shed’ the outer layer of ‘skin’. Though unsure of why they do this, it is believed this is how soft corals keep parasites and such off of them.
