Toadstool leather

Got him two days ago. Was never fully extended like at the lfs and now it looks like a green mushroom. Am I worrying for nothing or am I doing something wrong. Medal hallides on my hqi biocube 29

Haha thank you. I'm a worrier. Also I got a really good deal on this bubble coral in Alpharetta and the guy told me it just needed some tlc. It's only been in my tank like a week but he's not really puffing up as much today. Any idea? Sorry, iPod camera.

Bubbles like med-high light, and med-low flow. It looks like it has some algae on its skeleton, not sure how to help with that though.
Where did you get it in Alpharetta? A family friend's brother in law owns Purereef, beautiful store from what I've seen in photos.

Yes! PureReef is amazing. I wanna move to Alpharetta just so that its my lfs. It's so nice with such a great variety of pretty much everything saltwater. I made my whole family go 45 minutes out of our way to stop by while on vacation... Soo worth it. I wish I lived closer

Thats really cool, wish I could see it in person. From the pics I've seen, it looks like a pretty nice store. These friends just got back from a visit last week, and said he had a Lionfish the size of a basketball!!
Only thing I could suggest with the Bubble is to put it in a decent amount of light with lower to moderate flow, too much flow will keep it deflated. Also they do like some meaty food once in a while, crushed up anything really, sprinkled over the top. Mysis, brine, even meaty flake would work.
Best of luck with it!
