leather coral

  1. General Reef Discussion
    I have gsp trying to take over a leather. I want to save the leather. Anyone had this happen? Should I cut the leather off the rock and peel the gsp off of it? Or cut the leather above the gsp? I want the leather off the rock anyway but sure want to keep it

Actually a while back I lost a ton of zoia's they seem to be coming back on there own. and my anemone has...

    Hello, yesterday I bought a green long polyp leather frag. It looked very healthy, minus the fact that the polyps weren't out. It has been in my tank for 1 day and is starting to look all shriveled up and it has twisted from the position I originally set it in. It is my first coral that I've...

    I really like some of the Leather corals and I am going to make an all softie tank, what I want to know is how many different types of Leather corals can you place in a tank together or will more than one be in for a fight to the death with them?

    Does anyone know what kind of leather this is? And if you do, do I need to cut it in order to get more or will it grow more on its own?

    I took a look at my leather coral today and i dont know if its dying or shedding. It has like green spots on one side and on the other like brown burnt marks. I moved it to the mid zone of my tank since there is more flow there but i originally had it at the very bottom. So should i put it at...

    Hey all, Just came home and my Leather Coral is kinda drooping down so I was looking at his base and noticed this little brown guy. I'm assuming the red is a tube worm and I'm not worried about it, but is the thing to the right a tiny Majano? I've had this leather for about 4 months now and...

    I have a Cinnamon Clown that i believe was wild caught. Every time i put a anemone in the tank he goes nuts and immediatley takes to it.. i bought a Bubble anemone that is about the size of a piece of bologna and he took to it so much that i think he started to stress it out. I moved the anemone...

    I just took my toadstool leather coral home from the lfs and noticed a white stringy substance coming off of it. What is this? I can't get a very good pick right now. It's mostly coming out of the mouth.

    I have had this coral for about 3 weeks now and for the past week it has not opened up at all, and looks shiny in some spots so im assuming its just molting or something because its getting correct flow and plenty enough light. Just today i found this THING on my leather and have NO CLUE what it...

    Like my other post, I purchased a new light setup and wanted to see if the new light is working for my corals. So here is a picture of a cabbage leather coral. Please let me know if you think it is doing well under the new light or should I do something to make it better. Thanks in advance!

My question was where exactly do I frag it? Do you just cut a small section off the top or do you need to include some of...

    I have many other soft corals that are doing very well, but the two new leathers I added about two weeks ago were fine until two days ago. I am not sure what has happened but they have closed up! The Tonga I added at the same time is doing fine. Is there a trick with carpet leather or long...

    We have 2 leathers one always slumped over and finally detached itself from the live rock. I've tried once with the toothpick and rubber band and it appears I did this to low in the coral... I tried a second time and again detached itself... I'm not sure what else to do.. The large one is doing...
