hairy mushrooms

  1. General Reef Discussion
    Just picked up a new light fixture the other day. I went with an AquaticLife 72" T5 HO 8 banger. Running four 420/460nm bulbs, two 10k, and two Purples. Also it has six 1 watt leds for moonlight. It was very easy to set up the timer and mount it on the tank. When I finish the basement I will be...

    Hello!:wavey: I recently purchased a hairy mushroom, I was wondering how fast do they grow? And my percula have completely ignored it, so I was thinking to just get a BTA. I have a 20 gallon and no other coral... People have posted that there is no guarentee to them hosting a hairy mush, so...

    We are looking to get a RO/DI unit for our 125gal reef tank. There seem to be a lot of options out there but here is what we have discerned: 5 stage seems to be plenty because everything we read says stage 6 is activated carbon for "taste and texture" 50 GPD should be plenty to provide us...

    it seems that I have a large amount of shrooms in my tank. They are kind of taking over. What is a safe and easy way to shrink the numbers and make my tank pleasing to the eye? Thanks for the help and ideas in advance.

    I have about four emerald crabs in my 28g and three of them are well over an inch across now, which is about ten times bigger than when I got them. They are so much bigger than everything else and I hope they stick to just eating algae. We break up an algae tab since there is nothing on the...

    I have had these hairy mushrooms for years. I noticed today they each have a flourescent orange spot on them. You can't see in the picture but even the little ones have it. Any ideas? I have never seen this before.
