Free Live Rock?

Y dad's friend is giving me some of his live rock and it has a small mushroom on it. I want to put it in my tank but if the mushroom dies(and it prob will) will it nuke my tank and i dnt even know what kind it is any ideas or opinions on what to do.
Ps-i really want it cuz his tank is very mature while mine is only a few months old and also my lfs has very expencive LR and im out of cash

Why would the mushroom die and nuke your tank? I think it will be fine.

I've had shrooms in my tank survive with absolutely no artificial light\fixtures. The only light the tank had for several months was just ambient light from the windows in the room. Shrooms are very hardy. You'll be fine.

Just remove it from your tank. Doubt it will nuke your tank unless you have a small nano...even then i doubt anything serious will happen.

I just leave things for my CUC. This isn't something I would do with smaller tanks to avoid ammonia spikes.

Take it out if you notice in time; otherwise don't worry about it.
