i have a cathedral finger coral who shrunk down a few weeks back and i thought it was dying as im relatively new to marine. 5 Days and he was back to his original self thriving in the tank and looking double the size it was when i frst got it just over month ago.

Its quite natural for them to think sod it im not coming out, making you worry and then one morning you look at him and hes fully retracted!

I have had leathers before, and it always seemed that for the most part they like water flow. My last leather i had at moderate to high flow and it grew like crazy

Don't over due the moving around thing. Give it a chance to adapt to the light and flow of the area that you moved it to.

It took my tiny toadstool leather a while to get use to the tank ( about 1-2 weeks) before it fully opened. It seems to like medium flow ( indirect). Its about half way up my tank as well with 200 watts of PC on.
