    Howdy all. So I bought a Toadstool Mushroom frag on Sunday from my LFS, and placed him in my tank perpendicular to the sand bed (I'm curious if this could be the issue?) The first two days he opened up great but the last two he hasn't at all. I have a koralia powerhead in the top left of...

    So for the last week I've seen this guy crawl up into bed and spend the night in my toadstool - of course that makes all the polyps retract, which I think it does most every night. Will this behavior hurt my toadstool? should I move him to another part of the tank to break this habit? I've...

    I have a toadstool leather in my aquarium and his polyps are always extended however this evening I noticed a long jellyfish looking tentacle that came out and retracted multiple wtimes. It extended about 3-4" out. Is this normal? Should I be concerned? Or are the tentacles something else...

    Hi! I am new to keeping coral and was wondering if the toadstool was either sliming or is this a serious issue. My water is perfect and the toadstool was added about three weeks ago. Any response would be great. Thank you for taking the time and reading this. (P.S. that white spot at the...

    The past few days my toadstool has been doing something I find rather strange! As you see in the pics it folds one of its sides in on itselfs causing all the tenticles to go in. I looked at it from the side, which meant I could see the underside, and it almost made a dark, almost black line...

    For the last 2 months my toadstool has been more closed up than out. And for the last week it is rarely seen with more than 10% extension of its' polyps. I know the tang is nipping at my kenya tree, I assume it has been keeping the toadstool in check as well. But this "ring" around the base...

    Suggestions for placement of new toadstool leather coral. I'm thinking mid level, mod flow, epoxy base to a large rock. What would be a good orientation? coral facing up or pointing towards the front of the tank?

    Hi guys, I have had a toadstool leather in my 80 litre tank for about 3 months now. I found today that a small piece of it had fallen off (smaller than the size of a 5p piece). I was starting to worry about him as he has yet to fully extend his polyps -which is a crying shame coz he was a...
  12. "Soft" corals
    Hi guys, After months of mega patience i finally added my first coral, a toadstool leater to my 80 litre tank. Water parameters are all good, and just to make sure my lfs also tested a water sample of mine and they came up with the same readings as me. On the way home, the coral retracted its...

    I am currently getting my tank back up to par after a long absecse. Will the growths of long hair algae hurt my zoos until I can get rid of it? They have been closed up since I've been out of commission. How can I tell if they are dead? I also have a toadstool that hasn't expanded for a while...

    Are toadstool leathers slow growers? Sometimes polyps are out other times not, but I just doesnt seem to be doing anything. Ihave had a problem with nutrients/algea over the past 2 months but lately has been improving with weekly water changes... In fact everything else in the tank is growing...

    I spent most of the day working on my 75 gallon reef tank and then started taking pictures. I tried some things that were new for me, and learned a couple of lessons from them in the process. I am planning on adding a whole bunch of pictures to this thread so it will not be very friendly to...

    Ever since day 1 the little joker loves to "hide" at the top of the tank. It is like his little area in the tank. He stays in the corner all day and night and will come to the front when I feed him. He has been a solo fish for over a month now and I was going to get him a friend and wondering if...
