Also, when I got my leather I had placed it originally in the sand bed and it was not happy at all. I moved it up to the highest point by itself for max light and flow and found it open the next day. Its a good thing leathers are very hardy corals!

How big is your tank?

That was a 55 gallon with 20 gallon ref. That tank was torn down and moved to a 105 gallon with 55 gallon ref.

My devils hand is my oldest coral. Its at the bottom of the tank, in the shade in an almost no flow area and it opens huge with full polyp extension every day. It is also 10 times the size that it was when i got it....
