Cleaner shrimp issue

I just went through a ick disaster. My corals were at a lfs. I just brought them home and brought a cleaner shrimp as well. Now the shrimp won’t stay off the leather and it will not open. Will the leather get used to it and open or do I need to take the shrimp back?

If I remember correctly from many years ago my leather does that closed and open whenever. Your shrimp is probably eating the dead skin.
