Thanx all for the replies. I have 2 different kinds I have I think a blue one it is purple and blue it came on a piece of rock with about 3 little shrooms on it. they each have their own little stem. Will the whole stem move? They will swell up real big stem and all and then close a little and then go back to normal. Thats what I called stretching. The other one I have is kind of purple with bright green spots on it. It is a single shroom with like a bubble foot. It will stretch its little bubble foot up and out. I love watching these little buggers. They do this little stretch thing in a matter of five minutes and then all back to normal until night time then they go to sleep. It makes my day to wake up and see what they are up too. What is really funny is that they are now in my dreams. I have dreams of the little things stretching all over the place. lol! Also can they be placed directly on the sand bed?
thanx guys/gals
PS Melosu58 How long did it take for them to multiply.
BTW great pic!

I have soem mushrooms and had many of the same questions. This post has helped a lot. However I still don't knwo what a good timefram is for mushrooms to multiply. 1 week, 2 weeks a month??? What is a good guesstimate?

I also finally had some sucess direct feeding my bubble coral. I cut a smal lpiece of raw shrip and put it right near it's mouth after th lights were off for a little while. It actually sort of held on to the piece and it moved it into the mouth cavity.

I had a few little pieces of shrimp left so I placed them on the top of 3 of my mushrooms. Soon afterward the mushroom currled up and cupped the piece of shrimp like a venus fly trap. I am guesign that it was eatign the shrip but I don't know for sure. Is thsi and ok thing to do?

It is not needed to direct feed them. I could never get away with that anyway because the fish would take it from them.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.

melosu is a mushroom junkie. As stated earlier is it entirely dependant on your tank. In my tank a 10 polyp rock will double to 20 in about 1.5-2 months on its own.
