    I know leather can sulk but I've had this one 2 weeks now and it's started getting brown patches on it. Any ideas? All other fish inverts and corals are fine.

    Thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    How much flow is it in ? toadstools do much better when they have plenty of water flowing over/around them to help them when they shed a layer of skin or they can suffocate (so to speak) which is what it looks like,,they also like light, they can survive without strong lighting but under good lights they will thrive.
    You could use a toothbrush and gently brush the top of it to rid it of the dead layer and it may well come back as good as new, if you go down that route though I would run some carbon in a filter bag also.

    A bit of flow. Could be more in fairness. I've given it a sub and will increase fluw. See how that goes

    Think brushing with toothbrush might have sealed the deal.[​IMG]
