    mushroom frag in sump/ref?

    Id like to try using my ref/sump area to grow out some frag mushrooms. Can this area be used for that? i know that i will need to have good lighting. the ref area is 12x12x12 and i plan on using a coralife 18w pc with 2 10k bulbs. Is this a good idea? btw- my ref area has only 1 mangrove plant and a sand bottom.

    I have had great sucess with using my sump for frags. I cut the softies and toss em into an icecream container in the sump filled with med grade cc. Once the shrooms, polyps etc are attached to the cc its easy to mount them.
