"Just added to the tank"? Give it a few more days, it should open up. I have a leather coral, it is close up for more than 1/2 year and then suddenly it opened up. Leathers are really strong so don't worry. But if it's melting away, now that's any other story.

Well I just noticed its opening up and it seems to be "shedding" its old skin and coming out looking good!(:
