    Take a look at the base of this toadstool. It is turning a darker color. It was doing very well for several months and had good extension. About 6 weeks ago, he stopped opening. Is he trying to detach or something?

    Hi folks, I recently got this toadstool and it was not standing up in its previous tank. Its stem is about 3 inches long and the umbrella is about 2.5 inches in diameter. It has been in my tank for about 10 days without standing up either. I have another toadstool coral in my tank and it is...

    So I bought a toadstool from my LFS 4 days ago, at the store it was standing up right and fully open.. When they removed it from the frag tank it was attached to the tank, the employee was pulling at it to get it loose.. I think he may have hurt its foot as he was yanking at it, then I brought...

    I bought a toadstool a few months ago and it stood straight up with about a 5 inch stalk. Now the stalk has kind of folded over on itself and it doesn't extend up very much. All of the polyps fully extend during the day, but it just doesn't stand up straight anymore. It is a little high up...

    Hello! I have a question about my corals. I have a 10 gallon reef tank. Almost 7 months old. It was downgraded from a 55 gallon when I moved back home with my parents briefly....they didn't want a large tank. I did not have a second cycle and did it all pretty seamlessly about 3 months ago. It...

    My toadstool has been bent over about 90 degrees the last few days. Other than that, it looks healthy. Is there any reason to be concerned or is this normal?

    Actually I did some research before I got one but I didn't realize what Houdini's these little guys are. So Friday I get a green leather toadstool from the LFS, it was just attached to the bottom and side glass of a tank. So I got it home acclimated it and attempted to glue it to piece of dry...

    Hello everyone. I have had my 75g cycled for about 3 weeks now. Ammonia and nitrites are 0 and nitrates are 5. I also have 2 clowns and a rhodactis which are all doing very well. I have read about the toadstool and their prissy behaviors but I just wanted to triple check on normal behavior. When...

    I have been watching an interesting game going on in my tank, and wondered if anyone else has seen anything like this. First, I started dosing for my corals... Reef Foundation ABC, based on testing by my LFS. At the same time, I got a new light for my Nuvo Micro 30 - an Ai Prime. Anyhow, several...
  10. "Soft" corals
    I just got a Toadstool Coral 4 days ago. Yesterday afternoon I noticed it slumping over. The light was off at the time. So I just thought it was because of that, since, most the corals in our tank retract or shrink when the light is off. Just checked it this morning and it's still slumped over...

  12. "Soft" corals
    Hi all. I'm new here and in reef keeping as well (5 months). My tank is a 100ltr live rock and live coral. I have 1 bicolour blenny, 2x clownfish, 1x skunk cleaning shrimp, 1x turbo snail (awaiting for 2x peppermint shrimps to sort out aipitasias). After cleaning the tank yesterday I've noticed...

    Well since most threads are problems I decided to post something nicer My toadstool who decided to move left a smear of himself behind. I was just getting ready to pull the rock and clean it and saw little polyps on it. :banana:

    Maybe this is nothing but... I added a large leather toadstool to my 24 gallon tank yesterday and did a 1 gallon change with r/o water (it did look cloudy). I am having trouble with my "intelligent" light so it's been on weird over lighting cycles. Now the water is cloudy. Brownish ring on the...
  15. "Soft" corals
    So finally adding some corals to my tank and I have added a toadstool. Been in about a month and it looks like to two stalks and trying to separate and one is just hanging over. New to this so I am looking for any advice.

  17. "Soft" corals
    I just got a new green toadstool last night, and this is the first morning that it's been in my tank (the lights were out when I put it in). When I put it in last night it was standing mostly straight, but now it is leaning over and I'm not sure if this is unusual since I've never had a...

    Wow, my Toadstool leather turned brown ALL over and went limp for nearly 2 weeks, which is longer and wider spread than any other shedding before, so I was concerned this was more than a shed. But as of today, much of the slime is coming off and a few of the polyps are coming out. I just wanted...

    Wow, I just watched my 6 Line eating the film that my Toadstool periodically sheds directly off the Toadstool! I am surprised that the discard from the Toadstool could be food for another tank inhabitant...another amazing example of nature at work!

    Two things I just noticed. One, my healthy toadstool has a hole in it! I'm hoping it's damage rather than necrosis. I'm guessing it will be fine, but want to be sure. Also, my torch coral either has both heads retracted or both heads out, and will stay the same way for days at a time. Well, I...
