I have several more of them grow every month. Just make sure of weekly PWC`s and ideal water conditions. Keep your nitrates low. Looks good

How low level can your lights be for multiplication? I have a lot in my tank and they've been opening up fine for around six months now and don't show signs of distress... I also only have 2 x 30w (one blue, one white) lights over a 55G tank.

Mushrooms dont need much light. I have some growing under my rocks as big as baseballs. They are a low to medium light coral.

Yeah.... it's pretty neat to have something that looks so neat, be so low maintenance and low on light requirements. Are there any others that are in the same intensity requirement as them? I'd like to add just a bit of variety.

Sun polyps are low light corals but they do need constant target feedings.

just an update on the mushroom! the stock is totally splitting and making a new mushroom, and there is a new shroom growing where the rock that my old one was on used to be. Im pretty stoked.

Just think in about a year you`ll be taking rocks with mushrooms on them to the LFS and trading for different corals. That`s where and how I got some of mine doing trades with mushrooms to the LFS. I `m glad for you.
