My Yellow leather!! Is dying or not?


I purchase a (Bright) yellow leather last saturday.It hasn't open since then and also it looks like melted on the rock were i place it. Also it looks like brownish and when i get home i can see some thing that looks like detritus on the coral. At first i though it was just the shreding process but it really don't look so good. On one of the sides you can see the interior of the coral looks like white flesh. It is place on a spot with good light and flow .

My parameters:
Nitrites 0
Ammonia 0
Phosphates 0
Calcium 420
Ph 8.2

Any help will be appreciated!!

sounds like it's on it's way out! I would get some Lugol's dip or Reef dip and dip it the maximum the directions tell you too.

Kid is right...a dip might help. those yellow leathers are tough little buggers....I have an easier time with SPS than I do with those buggers
