    My toadstool leather seems to have turned dark purple blue in a spot and i read online that they shed their skin and this is normal. how long does it take because it been at least a week probably two since its been blueish

    That first coral is a digitata, a type of SPS coral. I would try and remove that algae growing on the dead tip area.

    And it can take a few weeks to a few months for the leather to perk back up, but they are so tough I wouldnt worry about him

    Yup, that first one looks to be a Forrest Fire Digi?
