The rule of thumb is if it doesn't open up in a week there is a problem. Good luck!

Flow over your leather is very in portent. Leathers will also tell you your alkaline levels are to low. Ph should be closer to 8.2 or 8.3 in a reef. Try a good buffer or a more reef salt mix like red sea coral pro.
