Ok I've had this leather for over a month and it was doing great it would retract its polyps and shrink at night but in the morning he, was back to normal.

3 days ago he never perked back up




Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrate 10
Ph 8
Temp 78
Kh 10
Calcium was 360 and I doses with reef code a and I still have to check it again

36 gallon
130 watt dual pc with 10k and 460


Edit: I just checked calcium and it is 360 so I added another cap of reef code a

Mine did the same thing not to long ago after a water change...it stayed closed (for lack of better word) for several days. Maybe close to a week... I thought it was a gonner, but then it just started opening up again! Now it looks like it did when i first brought it home. I would give it time...some folks have said that they do that and when they start opening up again they are bigger. If water tests good then I would not panick just yet.

mine shrinks when it gets ready to shed
another thought is I see its on the lower part of your tank
hows your flow and lighting they like moderate flow and lighting
your calcium is also a little low
I keep mine between 450/480
