    Hey,i bought a leather toadstool and he opened up really nice the day i put him in tank then closed up when lights turned off.then next day opened up a little but couple of days after he just closed up and looks like its sagging over and not coming out atall. I know they do sulk a little but was a just little worried any help would be much apprecited.

    Don’t panic. I recently moved mine and it sulked for about 2 weeks. It went from being huge and healthy to looking like it was about to turn up its toes. It got over it and is doing great.

    Looks fine to me, its just what they do. It will sulk for a while and almost look like its dying, then it will come back looking better than ever!

    These develop a waxy coating every now and again, the polyps won’t extend and it’ll look miserable for a few days. It’ll then start looking like it’s dying and disintegrating – at this point it’s just shedding the waxy coat. When you see this aim a powerhead at it or blast it gently with a turkey baster to blow off the waxy coating. The next day, all the polyps will be out and it’ll be a little bigger than it was before.
