I think the key is to have multiple coloured ones so it varies. I was told the guy who was the main supplier of those in Sydney was the same guy who got eaten by a crocodile in Queensland.. it figures since all the LFS have had a serious shortage of them and now charge a premium for them.. $6 per **** flower!!

slice them off the rock, mount them on rubble and sell them to the LFS for credit if nothing else.

That is what they are. Thanks for the pics. Your initial post just confused me a bit, sorry. They are easy enough to remove. You could remove them using a chisel and scraping them from the rock. Be sure to get a small layer of rock as well. That makes it easier to attach and it insures you got the entire shroom. Good luck.

Are you able to just pysically cut them away with a blade or something?

Seems a bit hostile..

Aquarium Corals (the Borneman book) lists them under the corals family, but notes they have weird characteristics, and a very unstudied.

Some do eat fish

Yes, as Hara suggest, they can be just sliced off. It's not hostile, it's actually a pretty typical way of moving/propogating them.

Greenmaji, they said they used to take things for credit, now they say they can take critters, but they don't give credit. I learned that a few months ago when I wanted to exchange a fish I bought from them!!!!

Ace - I've got to get to Sacramento! Do you have/need shrooms?

I will check out the link suggested, but if anyone in the Vacaville area wants some, I'd be happy to share, I don't mind just donating a few.
