Dear Terry Ng, and fellow Listers,
  I have never noticed corals quickly changing colors.  
  A gentler way to make polyps react, or close, is to fan them, rather than actually touch them, as even the lightest touch might press flesh into the calcarious structure below, causing grievous injury.
  Could you please post again, with a general type of coral?  I suspect you mean a type of "star" coral.  Are you seeing this on a night dive, or daylight?  Also, where are you diving?  What country?

Sneak preview the  all-new Yahoo.com. It's not radically different. Just radically better.
