    Hey Guys,

    Not sure what is going on with my leather coral.

    A few days ago it was doing great and opening fully etc.

    About 4 days ago it stopped opening, it has since shrunk in size to about 40% of when its fully opened, no polyp extension and it appears that the coral has these white spots all over it, on top and underneath.

    Does anybody know what could the problem be or any steps of action i should take?

    Thanks in advance.

    Pics attached.

    Is it not just shedding.

    Might be too little flow.

    Too much light.

    Leathers are rather bullet proof I would not be worried.

    Its shed before, but never seen the white spots. Even when its shed before it has never shrunk this much.

    As for the light, i have not changed any light specs in the last 4 months.

    Hi Nick. How's the leather doing now? Mine also has the white spots and hasn't opened fully in a while.
