Hey everyone,
I've been having this green toadstool for two weeks, and I've never seen its polyps fully extend. I've placed it on a ledge in the middle of my tank and on the floor, and the most I've seen it extend is on the sand bed.

Here is one of its brothers (I assume) that was in its previous owner's tank.

And here it is now, in my tank...

Check salinity. Temp. Alk.
Ur leather prob just needs time. How longs it been in ur tank? Looks like its trying which is a good sign.

I don't own an Alk tester, but I am working on getting one... temp is 78°F, salinity is 1.022ppm (I am in the process of mixing saltwater). The leather has been in my tank for 2 weeks, at first I thought that it was in the process of shedding but throughout the span of those two weeks I have never seen anything come off of it.

Do you think there are benefits to turning your skimmer off for periods of time?
