My very large leather coral has detached itself from its rock, so I took some advice and put a large wooden skewer through it and rubber banded it to a large rock. Well today it ripped itself off the skewer what do I do now?

      Most of the time color changes in corals are related to the tank lighting, rather than coral bleaching. Coral bleaching is where there is a mass expulsion of zooxanthellae. Most likely your coral has zooxanthalle but not enough lighting, so you are losing color.

      My leather coral looks exactly like your picture, right down to the little one underneath it. My question is should I leave the small one there, or move it to more light?
