Nope, they all get along together. They tend to segregate by colors though. The right side of my reef is dominated by red shrooms, while the left side is almost all blue shrooms. In the middle they tend to mix together a bit more.

My SPS do not want to be physically touched by them, my softies and LPS don't seem to give a darn about them as they grow right up to the base of these corals. My soft corals are all touching mushrooms and don't seem to be having any issues.

Greg, do you know of a good online source other than Live Aquaria for identifing corals? I want to figure out what all I have and learn a bit more before I continue getting frags.

Rick,..I went ahead and ordered another stark led fixture the other day, so hopefully they'll ship it out fast and I'll illuminated that gap in the tank,...I think tomorrow I'll drop by the lfs after work and pickup another frag or two and check on some more mushrooms,..everything looking good so far!!!

I don't think you'll regret it.That way you can adjust the other two fixtures so your whole tank will pop.Make sure you show us some pictures when you get the new fixture up.
