Another thing to keep in mind w/ leathers is that, while they are hearty, they can take a while to adjust to their new environment. Even after drip acclimating them, I have had 3 that took up to a week to adjust in ideal conditions.

I just bought a finger leather that is almost 2ft long and has a crown on it that is approx 18inches across. That was 3 days ago...its starting to adjust, but it has yet to extend and open up like it was in the LFS. It just takes time.

Most leathers will do best in med to high light and med to high waterflow.

ok thank you. they both seem to be doing great they have both opened up. i had to move the finger to a lower light area because he was trying to move out of the light. moved him to the bottom of the tank and now is doing vary well. might have to move him up to the top of the rock in a few weeks.

A 46 gal bow front (Soft coral) reef tank with a 10 gal sump. And a 30 gal (SPS and Clam) reef tank hooked up to the sump of the 46 so they share water.
