Hard to tell, could be the clowns annoying it, could be a light issue, could be a water quality issue, etc...

Could be just a new home. They will do that every now and then. It will shed also.

Leathers are pretty tough. Mine retracts it's polyps for a half day or longer sometimes for seemingly no reason. Probably nothing to worry about.

Mines not a torch it's a toad it looks just like the one in the other photo when the tenticals or what ever there called aren't out I had it for about a month before they came out. Someone told me to put it directly in front of my power head and I did and in about three days they started coming out.

Can u post a pic of it closed up at night? Just curious what it looks like because in that picture it sure looks like a torch. Is the "stalk" hard or soft?? With that being said I can't see a torch being happy directly in front of a power head would it?
