first mushrooms arriving today. need newbie advice

I asked for the free red mushrooms with my reeftopia order (which is arriving in a few hours) and realized I have no idea how to handle these things.

I have a rock picked out for them, as I understand they should have their own.

Do I just need to place them on the rock by hand? How long does it take them to attach?

Is there some sort of RO dip or something I should do for them before I put them in the tank?

I can't think of any other questions, but I need whatever newbie info I can get!

54g all-glass bowfront corner planted FW

Red tiger lilly, Rotala Indica, Sagittaria Subulata, Micro Sword, Cardinal Plant
Fluorite Black sand and gravel

Nothing too special about adding shrooms. Just place them in the tank somewhere low. If they are not attached, placing them in a low flow area near rock or on rubble will provide them a place to take root. Good water conditions are needed for them to multiply but light levels can vary from low to high.


To fail to plan is to plan to fail.

I usually take some fish line and lightly tie them on the rock and in a couple of weeks they should be attached.
