clown fish with leather coral

ok guys here is my leather coral i guess its a toad stool you can see more in my album on my main page ok here is wat happend i moved somethin just now in my tank and he closed up cause i brushed against him i left the room came back he is still closed but a juvinel clownfish false percula still red in color he so young no more than a inch long is swimming around on top of him wallowing on it rubbing all over it swimming away and coming back is he hosting with it i have had clowns host with anenomes but not this coral if he is hosting with it will my leather coral stay closed up because of him this coral is the highest thing in my tank. my main question is if the clown is hosting it will the coral stay closed when he is in it?

Usually at the beginning the coral might be irratated but they get used to it and eventually look pretty good with the clown IME.

My toadstool leather sheds skin every month or so and closes up for about a week during that process. Maybe it's not the clown at all?

There's a video that may be of some use for you on leather coral fish at SaltwaterHub - Different Ways of Testing Your Water I've been finding the site useful.

All leathers slough which is what you described above. That very well could be the reason or it could be the clown. Thanks Lynxpilot for bringing that to our attention.
