It's so annoying- I have two mushrooms that have done NOTHING since I got them.

I have a blue/violet mushroom that has stayed the same size since I got it over a month ago...... I don't know what it's problem is. lol

I have the same mushrooms that grow like weeds but a months time is really not a lot of time to see some major growth. Let me know in about 4 or 5 months what is going on. And as far as your corals growing too large you can take it back to the LFS and trade for another coral or for store credit.

How can I frag them. I guess now my tank is mature enough to handle anything. Also Coral Line has been growing everyware and some spots look discoloered like green and maby white but same shape as coral line. what does that mean. Thats a good Idea ill probley sell them back 2 the LFS or give away.

fraging them is were you cut peices off of your parent coral, I have never done it so you will need to talk to someone who has!
