I have seen two corals show swelling and inflation of patches that droop like a large teardrop. The polyps and coral surface appear normal on top of the swollen area. Underneath I find a pocket of clear liquid. This has occurred on two corals are about 6 inches apart one a favia (or favites) and the other an orange crush acan. I have ruptured the swollen welts and removed the coral flesh and polys from the areas. Attached is the orange crush before and after removal Any ideas what's going on?
