Mushrooms ok?

It's to dark to get a picture but I'm wondering, at night do mushrooms close up? I have a small frag with two on it and they seemed to be doing ok, today I put my second wave maker in and tonight they are completely closed up. I'm not sure if I've just never noticed this before?

Could there be to much flow in my tank? Is there such a thing?

Mushrooms are the java moss of reefs. They grow in many conditions. Most tanks will work as long as lighting is decent. Prime conditions are low to mid lighting and low flow. You could put them somewhere where they wouldnt be getting that much flow, but they should be fine as long as they aren't being bleached or something. Good luck!

Btw, what type, ricordea( my favorite)?

Thanks for the info! I'm not sure what kind the frag was given to me. When they are open it's kinda metallic blue/green and when closed it's neon green

Nice they sound like normal greens but they will look great under actinics.

Yeah they do look really nice and I placed them under a rock overhang with partial light and less flow so I'll just watch them and adjust if needed
