    my pink finger leather is in trouble

    my pink finger leather is not opening itself.. Is it maybe its too close to the light?
    I have it sit up high on a rock.


    Can anyone give me some feedback on this problem.

    do you have pics? finger leathers do tend to close up from time to time for no apparent reason but then open up again like nothing happened.

    How pink is it?- I've never really heard of a true pink finger leather. Without a pic, I can't be sure, but it is possible that is has been dyed pink- in which case it isn't doing well because it is probably going to die from having been dyed. I can't know for sure without a pic, though...

    Alrha & mp123,
    that closing up is very normal with all leathers and lots of gorgs. They do this to produce what's called a "mucous tunic" to rid their surface of accumulated debris, algae and bacteria. What they do is basically shed their outer layer after closing up and along with that layer goes the accumulated crap on the surface. This is why they usually look a lot better afterthey open up again. Kinda like a facial!! When they're closed up going through the process, they often have a "wetlook" even though they are already underwater.
