Not the best pictures in the world .., the mushrooms are in the middle section of my tank where very little light gets in ( see pics I posted of tank a post or two back ) .. But you'll kinda get an idea., color bleached of course due to lighting and they are not fully opened yet., nice healthy colony though....... Hey , What'da you know .., we're back to talking about mushrooms again!!!

Mushroom discussions need mushroom pictures.

Runaway growth. I counted the shrooms in one square foot and approximated there are almost 1000 of them. This is 15 years since the first ones were added. Every rock surface that doesn't have a competing coral established already is covered in shrooms.

Far out, that's amazing! But I'm pleased to report, I have some youngsters too! Is there a guide to ideal mushroom growing conditions somewhere?

I'm sure there is but where it is, I don't know,...usually mushrooms are pretty easy to grow,...just place them at a lower level in your tank,without too much water flow ( if they start flapping their wings like a stingray on crack then the water flow is too high there )... Usually they like a little darker less illuminated area in the tank,...other than that ,... They should be good to go,...no feeding necessary ,they'll get what they need from your lighting and from your water.

Yep, just good water conditions, proper lighting and moderate flow. Nothing that thousands of dollars of equipment can't supply! LOL
But I have seen mini reefs full of mushrooms too.

My fire shrimp has been missing for over 3 months...he appeared for 60 seconds this evening, twice the size I saw him last and he was the brightest color of red I have seen. Shows how much activity happens on the back side of the reef in the dark holes.

Dary the colony looks really great. I've got one hairy, and one red, and a few colors of ricordias, but I am excited to get more!

Good to hear he is still kicking. I would be seriously bummed if my fire shrimp went missing. I know where he is at all tiimes. LOL He stays between two rocks at the end of the tank so I can always look in and check on him. When I feed the thank though, he comes out and cruses the rocks and sand bed for a bit which is always fun to watch.

I think the ricordea's are my favorites., kinda look like something you'd find stuck to the side of an alien space ship.., but they're all pretty cool and interesting.. I think some more ricordeas are in my very near future.., good luck on your mushroom patch .
