Leathers can be stingy. He was moved and probably got mad. But, is the flow hitting him stronger than before? LIghting the same? They usually perk up. When you moved all the stuff over, you also fluffed up all the debre and Trates hidden in substrate. Have you tested the water parameters. Now, they will tolerate some trates, but if he's been in there with perfect water you spoiled him and he's mad now. He should recover in due time. Also, don't keep moving him around either, as this will really not help the issue.

Yes, they like some flow, but if its blowing them to the side, and it wasn't before, he won't like it. And if thats him in the currect tank. Whats wrong with him?? Looks fine to me. Even his polyps are extended.
