So my finger leather had not been opening much the polyps sometimes peek their heads out a bit but nothing like b4 it still expands its fingers and it is def growing bigger seems healthy just not opening my water is fine all other coral is doing great I'll past pics when my tank wakes up
Does it have the right amount of flow? Experiment and move it around because i moved mine and it didnt open for 2 days then i moved it to a place with more flow and it was ipen an hour later... Good luck
That's the thing its attached to a large peice of dead coral skelton id rather direct flow to it... Your thinking, not enough? It doesn't get much I just find it weird polyps never come out but its growing, more and more
Iv had it about 2 years its been under new lights and in new tank for almost a year it under stronger flow for the second day now no change... Guy at the lfs said it could just be getting more then enough food
More than enough food? How did he come to that conclusion? That is definitely not the reason. Corals retract their polyps because they are stressed by something. Leathers do shed a layer of skin from time to time, but this doesn't appear to be what's going on. If that was happening, it would look more brownish than usual. I have a long polyp toadstool that extends it's polyps about 80% of the time. Every so often it shows no polyps at all for a few hours, and I can't figure out why this happens.
Did anything just happen? maybe a few days before this incident? have you recently changed bulbs or maybe the corals position? maybe 2 weeks ago?
