*Shedding Leathers?*

Is there anything I can do for my shedding leathers? What does this process consist of? Reason?

Nothing you can do except give it some good waterflow to help it shed. My leather sheds every few months and stays closed for 3-5 days. The best part is that it goes through a growth spurt for the next few weeks afterwards.

Yep give it some moderate flow.

I had my leather in some good flow and i've never had notice it shed.Maybe being in good current had something to do with it.
I've kept it for around 8 months before I sold it. It was kept under 96W PC for the first 4-5months than underMH for the remaining months in my old 10g

Here it is leaning against the current.

my leather recently shed, i had it on the bottom of the tank when it started and after about 4 days it still hadn't come out so i moved it into better water flow and within 24 hours it was back out and better looking than before the shed.
