I got them delivered from liveaquaria on Friday- the candy cane came broken (they gave me a partial refund). I epoxied them.

Use a turkey baster to blow the leather clean a thin clear layer should come off and it will be fine ...They do that when stressed or algae is growing on them...What kind of leds do you have ?

All of the texture goes away every night and comes back when the "day light" comes on.

I have OC REEF 48" 48x 3W CREE LED. It is about 3" above the water surface.

The Specs say Approx PAR is 500 at 24"

CREE X Series LED Aquarium Lighting - CREE 3 Watt Aquarium Lights

It's fine they close up at night and open when the lights are turned on. All your stuff looks good to me!!

So how long do I leave them at the substrate before I start moving them up in the tank?

My only thought is triple check your salinity.. I bought the glass floating hydrometer. My salinity was set at .025.. My Kenya trees were dark brown and not looking so hot.. Had a buddy come over to look. He brought his refractometer. And showed me my salinity was .032.. Took some water out added tap water til it was .026 on his refract.. And bam. The Kenya's came right back to life. So now I adjust so when my hydrometer reads .020. I feel I'm on the good til I can purchase a refracto.

Yeah - I have a Refractometer and I read between 1.025 and 1.026.

I have an auto top-off using RO/DI so everything stays constant. I also do a 10% PWC weekly.
