Bubble tip + Yellow Leather

Hey Guys I have a Bubble tip and a yellow Toadstool Leather. The BTA has positioned himself to be touching the base of the leather and the leather has retracted it's tentacles and kinda slumped over a bit...

Is the BTA stinging the leather??????? I can't move the leather I'ts molded itself to the roc....

That would be my guess. Your gonna have to move something if the leather does not open back up. Maybe place a piece of LR between the 2 until the BTA moves on.

Ive had mine (BTA) move forever and he`s been on the base of my leather with no ill affects. I`m sure he could sting him but most likely he`ll move off of him and move on. He might be sloughing. Just make sure his tenacles dont sting him becvause leathers will let off a toxin.
