New Toadstool leather (this is my first coral!)

Well, I got my first coral. The guy needed to get rid of it at the LFS cuz they are closing and moving an hour away. Here it is 10 minutes after adding it.

Actually i just waited until he was in the picture to shoot. I am hoping he waits for the frogspawn or torch.

Well, earlier I just put the coral in to get him in. Now he is where I want him. If you think there is a problem please tell me where to move him and I will try to get him there.

IMO, you should place it on the substrate, and the gradually move it closer to the light. It is quite possible that where you have it now...it is more intense than where it came from. You really don't want to bleach it due to photoshock. Also keep in mind, these corals grow very large, it may not have enough room where it is, vertical growth as well as horizontal.

I put a toadstool at the top and it grew like crazy. Moved it down a bit and it slowed down.

I "hid" it. I put it into this one little nook under my overflow. It is receiving a little flow. I love your toadstool Salt! It is like the main point in your tank. I also like the pipe organ.
