    Mushrooms

    Is there anything that i can do to get my mushrooms to open up more. I have blue and green striped mushrooms and they do not seem to open up all the way. Very tiny. On the other hand i have 5 frilly mushrooms and they are the size of the palm of my hand. Just wondering.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Well my motto is when in doubt do a water change- i'd do a big one- 50% at least and see if it helps- using purified water of course

    make sure they are under no heavy current, they need gentle to no current to thrive.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    I would say that they are in low current. They seem to be multiplying but they are very tiny and do not seem to get any bigger then a nickle at best.
