  2. "Soft" corals
    I just bought a Yellow Leather Coral on Friday. Today, I noticed that on one edge of the ruffle, it turned sort of brown/black. I shook it off and it floated in the water. Now, where this was there a part of the leather missing. Will it be ok? Anyone else experience this before?

    I had a finger coral die on me a while back but I think it was sick when I bought it. But NOW my yellow leather coral looks a little funny. Do I just have bad luck with Leather coral? Any advice on the best way to keep them happy?:help:

    Hi everyone I bought a beautiful yellow leather coral last sat. I was wondering if it is getting too much light. In the pic it's on the left hand side of the tank on the btm.

    I have a yellow leather coral and I was wondering how do they reproduce? Would I have to frag a piece off from it or what? I will have to get a picture of it to show all of you. It is small right now but I am interested if it grows. Thanks for any help, Brian
