Mine was doing the same, till I had a heating incident and had to frag it. 4 years later it was again outgrowin gmy 125. I traded it at the lfs for some sps corals, and kept 2 smaller frags.

My yellow Fiji leathers are now both about 6" around and growing.

That's beautiful. Would hate to see that destroyed. I've got a leather that's grown about 20 times it's original baby size since when I first got it. Was the size of a dime now it looks like this.

My only concern is the base of it started in a snail shell! I never could get it out. It seems like it's doing ok but I'm thinking about shifting the rock so instead of it hanging sideways and putting pressure on te base it will be growing up.
