I guess my favorite corals are the leather corals. I usually have several in my tank at any given time. I grow them, frag them, trade them, give them to friends. I just do very well with leathers, and since I do, I keep more of them that anything else. Right now, I have a fairly large toadstool. I've had a little over a year, and he has grown significantly since then. One point of interest, if you've never grown leather corals, they do "shed" a layer of dead skin every week or every couple of weeks. This is absolutely normal, and is the way these corals grow. You can help facilitate matters by aiming a small powerhead at them to help blow the skin away (not too strong though). You don't really need to remove the skin as it will be eaten quickly by fish, shrimp, and your clean up crew. Here's a pic of my toadstool from about a month ago: Hope you liked it!!
