What kind of lighting do you currently have? They don't require alot of light. As far as food, I don't feed mine anymore and they are doing fine. When I did feed them, I used marine snow.

The snow gets added to the water. You just have to turn off any filters/skimmers you have running for a while. They should do ok under your lights. What's your wattage?

I would strongly recommend placing them in your tank and watching them for 3 or 4 weeks before target feeding them at all.

I have 6 (started with 2, 2 months ago) and they grow fast, and spread fast. Not that it is a bad thing, just that why add extra nutrients/waste to your tank if you don't need it.

fwiw - I have 4x110 vho, 90 gal, 18" deep, feed the fish mysis every other day. My shrooms are going nutz! 8O
