Shedding Leather?

How often should leather's shed their coat. It seems that since I put this one in the tank (about 4 days ago) he has been shedding every day (this would be the 3rd shed).
Is this normal for leather?

It's quite common for leathers to shed a muscus layer to rid themselves of algae, etc. My two leather corals do this from time to time. In fact I think they are both doing it now!
I think having a medium water current over and around them helps cut down on them shedding so often! Anyone else want to add to this!:)
