    Mushrooms!

    Well I bought my Red Mushroom rock from PU in Moncton when thier reef-tank caught on fire..
    It was very nice. 4 rather large Mushrooms that grew about 8-10 times it's size during the daylight hours. As I said before, I had kinda left my tank be for a few months..
    However, in the past Month along, there has been 6 new mushrooms grow on the same rock! It's crazy.. they just keep multiplying! and this is the same rock that's overcome with aptasia! (I've ordered a copperband Butterfly and 2 pep shrimp to take care of that though ) lol

    Guess I'm doing something right..

    Any idea what would cause a spawn like this?

    did you try to pick them or cut them off before. Might have spread like that. Just a thought?

    Fragging mushrooms 101:

    Required Materials: sharp knife
    Required Skills: Handy with above knife

    :-)

    I use two methods depending on how many I want.... Limited numbers, cut the head off the mushroom leaving only the stalk attached to the rock. Toss the head into the sump and let attach to cc or just to heal. If I want lots I cut the head off a big one and cut it up like a pie. Toss the peices into the sump and etc etc.

    Some pics of the results

    Very nice...

    How do you keep them attached to a rock/cc piece?
    Also, how long does it take to completely heal?

    In my sump it takes a a few days for some and a week or two for others. Seems to be dependant on how rough I was with them. I let them attach to cc and then use two part epoxy to attach them to where ever I want them.
