    finger leather question

    I did my bi-weekly 10% water change a few days ago and all seemed fine before hand.Last couple of days Ive noticed my finger leather hasnt been opening up as much as he usually does.I noticed a small black blemish on one of his branches(kinda looks like its something under the skin) its about 2cm long...all other inhabitants seem fine including shrooms...could this be some sort of disease?
    thanks for any info...wish I could take a pic.

    keep an eye on it. If your leather is healthy, and the spot is getting worse, just cut the area off. It will heal quickly.

    Do you have any lps that might be extending their polyps at night and stinging the leather?
