Can you provide us with more details about the tank? We need to know:

- water test results (pH, Ca, etc.)
- did you change anything recently?
- is the coral actually dying, or is it just closed up? Sometimes leather corals close up for a few days, it's their natural behaviour and not a sign of disease
- are any fish/invertebrates nipping at the coral?
- is the leather getting enough flow? Some tree-shaped leathers will collapse if they don't receive enough water movement. My Lemnalia requires a HUGE amount of flow to thrive; it nearly died before I figured this out.

yellowslayer13 - not everyone here speaks English as their first language. If the meaning is understood, and you can help, why not offer assistance instead of being sarcastic?

BTW, your post lacked punctuation and capitalization, and in a 12-word sentence you managed to spell one word incorrectly. Take your own advice!
