    A question to the guys who has been around the block a few times: my LPS corals, especially the Bubble coral and Elegance, seem to be "open" more than what seems normal. During the night I can see the extended feeders, and I feed them almost everything that they want/need.
    Imo a Bubble should be covered with bubbles, but mine seems to have its mouth exposed. I feed weekly, and sometimes more, but I know guys that never target feed theirs that look better.
    It grows and looks good (had the Elegance 16 months and the Bubble 10 months)
    See pics to illustrate what I mean.

    Nothing to worry about, two lovely healthy pieces. My elegance coral looks the same as yours and my green bubble's tentacles are permanently extended, even during the day!

    The corals looks stunning, but if the mouth are exposed and the bubble aren't that bubbly it could be that the coral is pooping or making ready to feed. As on the bubble lps pic it seem the feeding tentacles are out and it's ready to feed. So nothing to worry about they look healthy.
