good flow, good light, not touching any other corals, then leave it alone.

Patience. They generaslly "pout" for a few days. If your water flow is different, it may take up to a week or so for the calcium rods or spicules in the leather to re-align to the demands of the new water flow.
Relax. As long as you are not using any phosphate absorber, you should be fine.

They will slough off a thick layer of snot whenever there has been a great chemical change (such as moving to a new tank), this is normal. Don't panic yet...

Dont panic as stated above they will slough. Even when they get going mine slough every couple weeks. Just follow the directions that Mrs Hara gave you.
