An upset open brain looks like. Having color is a good sign. Acclimating it properly along side stable, pristine conditions will lead you towards a hopeful recovery...but generally I don't think these guys do well in the aquariums we run. I've killed off a handful. Some are successful with them, so not trying to be a debby downer.

Beautiful coral - hope it makes it. Most of the LPS will pull in like that when exposed to unfavorable conditions and lighting. I certainly wouldn't give up on it, till it turns white.

That's a beautiful coral you have there. It looks much better in the second set of photos.
