mushroom placement and lighting.

i just ought a rock with a couple mushrooms on it. i know mushrooms are low light and low current corals, my question is that i have a 55 gl with 300 wats of pc on it. i placed the rock more twoards the top of the tank cuz thats where the rock fit best, is that a problem, can they get too much light?? or are they fine with that much light that high in the tank??

I have some on the bottom, top and in the middle. High & low current. I have some right under 250 K MH & they are happy, happy... I would move them where you want and if they dont like it you'll know...

Act on your impulses.. You'll feel good now & it will give you something to regret later!!

When my mushrooms are in too much light or too much current, you can see them stretch to get where they are more comfortable. If they open up and stay put then they are fine.
