Leathers are really sensitive to some types of corals surrounding it, even if not touching it.

I have one similar, only it's the bright green variety. I moved it 5 times over the period of a full year before I found the spot it would grow in. Now at two years old it is growing well, but it sure took patience.

That type of coral usually gets along okay with similar corals.
