A good thing for leathers are an iodine dip. Usually a cap of Kents Iodine in a bowl of water from your tank will do good. Soak the leather about 15 - 20 minutes and then return to the tank. Do twice a week.

Thanks for the advice , we moved it more in front of the power head, should I keep it there or move it back. Will it like intense flow ?

You really need to get that hair algae under control. Phosphates are the driving force behind it. I have a small neon green toadstool, I haven't seen it have any polyp loss yet.

Yeah I'm working on the hair algae. We transferred a 6 month old tank to this tank and its been up for 3 months so total about 9 months. We had some cyano and got that under control and now I'm working on the green hair. Semi new tank syndrome. I adjusted the times of my lights and i am starting to feed less , I think over feeding contributes to nuisance algae as well. Ill post the progress as it gets Better.

I hate to say this, but I don't think phosphate is zero, it is just below the resolution of your test kit. My bet is it is above.1 and that will certainly affect leather corals and cause algae growth.
