sorry i'm going to ask you guys a question about this too. when you cut the mushrom do you just cut the head off? and if so does the stalk grow a new head? what would happen if you cut the mushroom into like 3 or even 4 seperate pieces?

It'll take a little longer, but you'll end up with 3-4 mushrooms. I usually cut the head and some of the stalk off. I then give it a few days to heal up a little. Then I take the head back out and cut it into 4 or even 6 pieces. Each piece will grow a complete shroom. The portion of the stalk will grow a new head. If you split the stalk with a razor blade, it'll grow two heads.

I'm not sure how true it is, but i have heard not to cut too much at once. The reason being is they release a small amount of toxin. If you cut 10 mushrooms in half it could be a problem. Anyone heard of this. I have always been careful, be safe rather than sorry.

I should have mentioned not to cut them in the tank. I always cut them in a tupperware bowl full of tank water. I do the palythoa and zoanthids the same way. Haven't ever had any problem with this method. Good catch Micheal!
