OK..I will try that. In the just the past couple of hours it now looks like it is shrivelling. It is very odd. And before it started that it looked like a shinny thin skin type material was comming off of it. I am so darn confused. It looked so healthy at the lfs.

well if it is new to the tank just give it few days. i had mine closed for like 4 days when he did open he had a film on him and i removed it and the was doing great. did you drip it for a few hours? or did you just put a few cups of water in the bag? and dont forget to lower the light for the period for a few weeks. i gave mine a little burn in the fist weeks because i forgot to change the timer.

NOW IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS GROWING ANOTHER "FINGER"

Looking at the leather now it is still hunched over and has a whole bunch of little things sticking out of it and looks kind of like it is growing another finger. Can take a pic if needed

Not to take away from noicelucas post, but our leather is a little over a year old, and it has doubled maybe tripled it's size since we got it, yeah I'd say tripled.

Noicelucas, can ya post a pic?
