    Hi all,

    I was just wondering if it is normal for the elegance coral to be so puffy?

    We have had it for +-3 weeks and this is the first time it has puffed up like this.
    The white stuff is also new. O and it has been puffed up since before the lights went on this morning.

    Maybe just expelling waste.

    A puffy LPS is a happy LPS. It looks healthy so nothing to worry about.
