    Finger leather question

    I'm wondering what I'm missing here.My finger leather isnt opening up as much as it usually does.All my iverts are doing fine..snails,starfish,shrimp,etc..as well as the fish and my mushrooms are thriving.My water pars are
    0 amonia
    0 trates
    0 trites
    8.2ph
    9 dkh
    Am I missing something that might cause this? Im mixing some fresh R.O water for water change tomorrow morning.
    Thanks.

    CA will affect it, what do you have to dose your ca? When did it drop?

    Oh, when my ca drops (slightly) everything start looking shaby, in that case I'm not sure.
