Mushrooms are very very easy to grow. They dont require intense lights or water flow and you can simply slice them in half with a razor and they will heal quickly and you will have two. I would recommend getting a cheap shroom and practice cutting that one before trying it on a nice one. If its stuck on a plug or rock just slice it right off as close to the rock or plug as you can and pull it from the tank. Put it on a cutting surface and slice it right down the middle. Any blade will do, I use an xacto knife myself. Once cut I would dip them in an iodine bath for a few minutes and then rinse off in clean salt water before adding to your tank. If you want to make sure that they don't blow around your tank or get attached to a rock you don't want them on I would take a container and drill holes in it and fit it with a lid that won't come off. The hole will allow water to flow through it. Fill it with some live rock rubble and add your shrooms. Leave em there for about 2 weeks and they will be attached to a small rock. Now they are weighted down and you can glue that anywhere you want. Hope this helps.
