Re: to public aquariums' reefs, look can be deceiving. Try coming back in a few weeks/months to see how those same corals are doing. Sometimes, they just pluck out dead corals and put in new ones. Could be less expensive than maintaining the aquarium properly.

The puffering up of LPS and softies indicate there're less flow. Your SPS might show the effect of low flow (more polyps extension)... but the longterm effect might not be so positive: tissue recession, undeserable algae growth, etc...
