How did you acclimate it? How long has your tank been running? What are your water parameters (ammonia, nitrites, nitrates)?

Any and all info about your tank would be very helpful.

And welcome to AA.com!!!

Leathers can take a few days to really open up and get comfortable with the tank. I wouldn't worry, give it some time. Not a bad idea to acclimate to light as well, start at low placement and move it up a little at a time.

I agree you just need to give it time.

Ditto, My toadstool leather took almost 3 weeks to decide he liked my tank and open back up.
