    I just got this leather coral from my LFS yesterday. It came with this brown stuff growing on the base of it. It’s polyps are also just little brown dots. Does anyone know the cause or what either of these things are? Thanks!

    Alright guys and gals. I got some clowns and a finger leather given to me today by a friend who shut everything down. The leather has me concerned. It lost all these spine looking things and one trunk is rotted. What should I do? I don't have a qt set up nor can I at the moment. Maybe just a bucket.

    hey everyone, check out this picture of my blue-grey sinularia leather. It's been growing like nuts until about 10 days ago it closed up tight (as it's done in the past) but this time it has algae growing all over it. I'm not super concerned yet because the flesh is all intact and I'm...

    Recently brought home this "Devil's Hand" leather coral as a gift from my LFS. After acclimation it seemed to be doing just find but soon began to shrink down to about half its original size. I did a relatively light water change and upgraded my light (which needed to be done anyway) and it...

    Well I woke up this morning to find all these little white balls/eggs floating in my tank. I tried finding the source and then I saw all of these were actually budding off of my large finger leather. Is the finger leather spawning? Is there any chance that these eggs will survive and grow if I...

    Yesterday I noticed that my finger leather frag had closed its polyps. I thought it was because my clownfish swam into it. I began to worry once they didnt open again for a whole day. It still looks in good shape, its not limp and theres no sign of tissue decay. I did some research and...

Also I found that I have some aiptasia growing around my corals (especially around my polyps, theres about 4 on that rock alone) and...

    I woke up yesterday morning to find the 5lbs. rock that my finger leather is attached to upside down in the sand. I have no idea how it was flipped. I put it back up and now today the tips of some of the fingers are white and the tentacles are gone :( Will this guy grow the flesh on the tips back?

    So... the last few nights my Emerald crab has decided to get friendly with my finger leather and sleep in it. He's not hurting it at all it looks like. He just likes sleeping in it. Evening comes and up he goes. Is this common with these crabs?

I noticed tonight however while looking at it in the moonlight it has tentacles coming off of it in two spots just under the line where...
