    Leathers close up for long periods of time sometimes. Mine was closed up for about 1-2 weeks earlier this year because of my new lighting. I know the tanks at BA's don't have too much light on them. It's probly just adjusting. I'd say do a water change like you thought and test your params but there's a good chance there's nothing wrong.

    maybe its just getting used to the conditions and shedding off a layer of slime, i've seen them do that when moved into new environments
