Mushrooms on my rock.

I saw something the other day that drew my attention, like 5 or 6 little mushrooms, maybe the size of a pencil's eraser each. This were kind of what they looked like:

My question is, i have a simple FOWLR tank with simple, will they survive with such low lighting?

Thanks, Leo

They will do ok with low light but probably wont grow as much. How much light do you have on the tank?

As stated above they will grow in regular flourecent lighting but their growth will be slow.
