Are you running any phosphate remover? This really upsets the leathers.

The leathers can take up to two weeks to right themselves. The calcium rods in the tissue (spicules) have to reshape themselves to the new demands the current is placing on them. These spicules are what hold the coral upright.

Can you post a picture?

Fish do not read books, nor care what we think.

Sorry about your loss. I dont see anywhere on this thread where you posted your water parameters. It might have been your water. Can you give us the results of your water tests. Let`s try to rule that out so it wont happen again.
