Toadstool help?

Ive had my toadstool for almost a year and about a week ago i had bought two sicce powerheads with the wave surfer. And my toadstool was opened for a couple days with the new powerheads and for about two days i havent seen the tenticles out. what would cause this I went from 2 maxijet 900 to my sicce 1200. I thought they liked alot of water movement, but idk what to do. can corals have bad days every now and then what would be the cause for them not to come out? thanks

Leather corals are notorious for having "bad days", sometimes weeks. I've had a Toadstool and a Thick Finger for years, and there were a few occasions that I swore they were dying or dead, all deflated and ugly looking, to the point I almost removed them. One particular time for a couple weeks, for the finger.
They've always come back, good as ever, after this period.
They go through a shedding period from time to time, called sloghing (sp?)I believe.
If your params are all in check they should be fine.
And yes, they do like a medium current. Not to the point that they are flopping over, but a nice flow.

Mine just started putting its tentacles out after 3 1/2 months without them out. I actually increased the flow to get it to come out. Here is the link I started about mine......ToadStool
