    Hey Y'all! Quick question. I know that you can cut a mushroom in half and it will regrow into two mushrooms. What if you leave the frag (already glued to rockwork) and cut it directly in half and leave them attached in the same spot? Will they make two mushrooms, or regrow into one? I'm...

    Hello Everyone! My mushroom corals were my first corals I put in my tank, and I think one of them might finally be growing another coral, after 5 months! Here is a picture!

    I have way too many green strip mushrooms and willing to give them away to whom might want some. Free just have to pay the shipping I have shipped before via USPS Priority Mail and had good results

    Hi, I was moving my Mushroom to a deeper shady spot because he wilted. While moving him I believe my claw gripped him and the rock...... Will he survive?

    I've had it over a month now and seemed happier when i first got it. Never really opened all the way up and seems to have lost some color on one side. Moved it around a couple times to lower light/less flow and nothing really changed. Ive been told its almost impossible to bleach a mushroom with...

    Hello everyone! I got this marvelous looking mushroom last week but I still can't tell what kind it is. It's the enormous green one at the back, next to the green hairy mushroom. My first thought is an elephant's ear perhaps but I'm not sure. As far as I can tell it's one big polyp. It didn't...

    So I've noticed some neon green growth on my rock with my mushrooms. These look real neat so I really hope they're good cuz they're all over this rock. They almost appear like a Zoanthid but not sure. On a stem with hair like fingers. Any ideas?

    So... i'm thinking about getting corals and so far this is what I think I want right now. Is this selection of corals ok? will they work well together? also is the placement ok? I want easy corals that sway in the water. Also, some that are colorful and small for the bottom part of the tank. I...

  11. "Soft" corals
    Hello. After some help please. All three of my hammerheads seem to be dying - very contracted. All had been fine for several months. We went away on holiday and the neighbour had strict instructions, yet from the moment we arrived back it was obvious that they were starting to struggle. I have...

    Hi Guys- hoping someone can help me figure out what is popping up all over my red mushrooms. They look like small, translucent, flat mushrooms. My discos don't seem to be bothered in the least, but I am. The little guys have been around for about 10 days, seem to be becoming more numerous, but...

    Got a new mushroom a few weeks ago. He's (I've assigned him a gender) been doing great, opening up right away, easily tripled in size since we put him in. Then I noticed he didn't open yesterday. Kept an eye on him, thinking he may need to be moved in the tank. This morning he's just a...

    Doing my tests and exterior cleaning of my tank I came upon my mushrooms who have been rather peeved since my heavy metal poisoning and I noticed an odd brown growth on one of the mushrooms. What is this? You can see an odd brown growth in the piCure. Sorry all I have is a cell phone.

    Hey everyone. So I have a bunch of assorted mushrooms in my tank, and have noticed that some have actually grown OVER other types. Like the generic purple with neon green, red, etc. I am not seeing any retraction or signs of a fight :lol:, but do you think thats okay?
  16. "Soft" corals
    Hey guys, I recently set up a small mushroom frag tank, and after cycling, I decided to put a few in the tank. The dimensions of my tank are 65cm x 40cm x 20cm, roughly equating to 50L. I am lighting it with 2 dual compact 11W marine blue/sunlight fluro, the PL-11 Aqua One brand. I have a...

    So this thin showed up a few weeks ago, even though I haven't added anything to my reef for a few months. It's getting bigger and appears to be some type of mushroom. It is a single polyp and has a base attached to the rock. It's the orange/red frilly thing.

    I'm really digging this coral I picked up last week. Labeled as orange crush. What do you guys think it is? Mushroom of some sort but I can't find one that looks like this.
  19. General Reef Discussion
    Hi all! I've had a couple of mushrooms for about two months now and am beginning to worry about their health. The mushrooms used to open up 2x their size, however recently, they've been much smaller and have developed white spots. I tried searching around but don't think I found exactly what I'm...

    I just came home after being gone for two days and I found my blue ricordea and my red mushroom covered in brownish slime and completely retracted. The red mushroom has broken into three pieces but still has a bright red color. I had both corals for only 4 days before I left for the weekend but...
