It may just be shedding which is totally normal for leathers. If everything else is fine I wouldn't worry at all just yet. What's your parameters and specific gravity?

Just got bk from lfs with a water test and it was my phosphate level which was a bit high and salt levels a little low, so I've just done a 10% change an they advised to follow up 2mora with a full 20% change to sort it out. But did the 10% half an hour ago and already the leather is starting to open.

Ok I put a post on before about my cats ear coral which is an Elephants ear, which is now doing well, but have now just been told they eat fish !!!! Is this true and should I take it out as I wouldn't want to loose any.
