Moving mushrooms...

I've got some mushrooms that have always been on the top of my rock structure. I'm planning on making some curved arches out of rubble rock to build the structure a little higher. My tank is 30" high and the structure isn't as tall as I'd like it to fill the space. So, I moved my mushrooms to the bottom. Given my 4" sandbed and the fact that I'm running the tank 1 - 1 1/2" low, the mushrooms are now about 25" away from my 4x65w PCs.

How can I tell if the mushrooms are getting enough light? Will they brown? Lose color? Should I move them down the tank gradually?

Shrooms are low light anyway. They should be fine. I have the opposite problem since upgrading my lighting.

Should be fine. As long as they open back up in a couple of days I would not worry. I have shrooms in top, middle and bottom of my tank and all are doing fine.
