Sorry are you talking about the Brain or the Mushroom?

I might hold off on any LPS for now till things get going smoothly.

I'm considering the Mushroom rock thing.

I'm talking about that cool mushroom. Mushrooms can take off like weeds over time. I have a million green hairy mushrooms behind my tank and other mushrooms are doing ok. They could easily be traded off.

Mushrooms grow easily and are easily removed if they grow too fast. Depending on the mushroom the price varies with red being the most common one here in the states. $5-10 per polyp isn't unusual.

The leathers are also suitable with good lighting. Again, they are easy to cut back it they get too big.

Feather dusters are a 50/50 proposition. I have had both good and bad luck with them. There are several fish that prey on them so be careful in that regard. Cheers mate.

Would I need to separate those two mushrooms?

I mean they seem to be getting along fine on that tiny piece there but could one eventually outgrow the other?

Coral Choice Help

Mushrooms coexist just fine with each other. Add a small rock next to the populated one and they will usually grow right onto it.

Well.. I got the Shrooms.


They've been in for about 2 mins at this point.

I've decided not to split them.

There is a LOT of Red heads on this piece, growing all over, so I'm afraid a few have been sentenced to the sandbed.

The Red/Blue Rhodactis is pretty huge and I've got it facing upwards.

There is a second 'Rhodactis' looking head on it, it has different colouration but I'm not too sure yet.

Anyways... At the mo I've got the Powerhead on alone. When should I turn on the lights?

I just flicked the blues on to see what's what and this is what I was presented with:


THEY'RE GLOWY!!!

There is quite a lot going on on this rock but the camera picks up almost none of it.

I'll try for a better pic when they've all opened up and are doing fine.
