Question Bubble Coral Health question??

Hey guys,

Just recently got a Plerogyra sinuosa from my LFS few days ago. When I first got it, it was a beautiful see thru white with large inflated bubbles. Now the bubbles have turned pink and have become much smaller

I feed it shrimp and it does have a healthy appetite. I have a 55g reef with 4X54w VHO SLR. My water parameters are excellent.

Is there somthing wrong with my bubble coral??

BTW currently, It is positioned on the sand at the bottom of the tank.

I have one too that has turned sour, it has gotten a little better, but I dont believe will be like when I first got it. It seems to be a picky coral even though books say otherwise...
Corals or Beer?? I'm in college, I'm allowed!!

Try shading it a little see if that helps. They don't like direct light.
Don't take life too seriously, nobody gets out alive anyway.

Do you think it has to do w/ change of diet? My LFS told me they were feeding it cyclopeeze. I have been feeding it bits of shrimp and silverside.
