Mushroom ?

I have a few new mushrooms in my tank. They have been in there for a month know. Do mushrooms do better out of direct lighting? Should they be put in the shade?

thanks in advance Dewey

I don't have as much light as you do, but my mushrooms like the bottom. If they stay opened and are multiplying, then they are happy. If they are not opening all the way, then try a shaded area.

My mushrooms prefer the shade and even more important, they dislike strong currents. They will stretch and move themselves to get to an area they like.

I would give them 3 full days. If they do not look opened, move them and try again.
