This is my new leather toadstool coral. I got it 3 days ago from my LFS and it looked this way. He promised me that it would expand. It decreases during the night and expands during the day(I know this is normal) but it won't seem to expand any more! Should I be concerned or does it just take time. By the way i put the toadstool in moderate to strong water flow controlled by a wave maker and lighted by 2 250 watt MH. Thanks!

Looks ok to me, give it some time in your tanks.

it looks great but sometimes they need to shed a layer after the change to a different tank so it may be trying to do this.

Moderate flow should be OK , strong flow may cause them to shrink up it they get used to it . Then again the phrases moderate and strong are somewhat subjective and differ between people describing them :)
