Mushrooms poping off

I currently have two mushroom colonies with babies growing. The big ones have started to pop off the LR. Currently i have two in a little bin. Will they die? How do i attach them to another rock or rubble? Thanks in advance.

Mushrooms dont like lots of flow. The best way to get them to attach is to put them in a tupperware with some LR rubble. Cover the container with some bridle vail so it doesn't float away.

Happy Reefing,

When they get too crowded they will pop off and float somewhere else in the tank to start growing. It`s happened many times in my tank.


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