Is your water parameters in check?

I have noticed with these leather type corals that sometimes they will shed and go through a few days where they don't open.

Try to kill it and it will live strong forever. :D

I've had a sprig in my tank for years I can't get rid of. I can grab the whole thing by the root and rip it out and a week or two later it pops back up.

I'd check to make sure there aren't any brittle stars or any other critters touching it. If a snail gets within an inch or two of mine it closes up. It could also be pushing up some babies. If mine is closed for more than a day, when it opens there are new lumps on the stem or near the base where it's about to sprout out from.

I wouldn't worry about it, I'd just figure it's up to something LOL.

Agreed. It's probably plotting the best plan to take over the entire tank! Lol

My Kenya Tree and leathers sometimes shed a waxy film to rid their surfaces of attached algae or detritus. They may remain closed for a few days before shedding this film, but it is usually a normal process. Strong water flow can help slough off the film layer.
