    Hey Nice looking tank! The mushrooms seem to be doing great!
    What do you have for lighting?

    Lighting cycle is :

    Moonlight LEDs on 24 hours (too cheap to buy a timer )
    2 X 6' VHO actinics on at about 8 am
    2 X T5 daylight on at 9am
    2 X 250Watt 14k MH on at 11am

    then the reverse at

    8pm
    10pm
    11pm

    yeah the mushrooms are doing almost too well lol, starting to wish i didnt have them, they take up too much space and are aggressive to other corals. would happily take them out for some more SPS, but they are on rocks that can't really be moved and are home to other corals.

    That's a lot of lighting.
    I never had great success with mushrooms. They were always slow to grow.
    I've seen a tank in New York that had only mushrooms, all different colors and it was beautiful. Great Job!
