I have found that leathers will adapt to any conditions, low flow, high flow, high or low lighting. I have had my leather for 7 years, it is 10 times what it was when I got it, it is my show piece. Good water and water changes and good lighting, mine is under 2x160 Razors, at the bottom of the tank (24") before that it was 2x250 MH, don't feed or supplement, easy coral

Leathers, once settled in, grow great. This one took almost a year to get comfortable then took off growing like mad.

I must say I have to agree, I totally thought it was a torch from the short stalk and longgg tentacles (and white tips)

You sir have one unique toad

Leather coral help

That doesn't look like a torch to me in the slightest. It is obviously a soft leather coral as there is no calcified skeleton a LPS coral would have. Torches grow in heads on stoney stalks. Like frogspawn or other LPS.Click image for larger version
