Pederson anemone shrimp hosting mushroom

Iím interested in knowing if anyone else has had a similar experience with these shrimp hosting corals instead of anemones. I have a few rock flower anemone in my tank but my shrimp refuses to leave this mushroom. I think itís kind of interesting because Iíve never seen anything host a mushroom before.🤷*♂️ Click image for larger version

I have not had any experience with these shrimp, but the mushrooms in question are very close relation to the anemone they would naturally form such a relationship with. It found a home and won't hurt anything.

Iíve had sexy shrimp host rics and frog spawns and torches before. Links sniperhank said if the coral doesnít mind then itíll be just fine.

I used to collect these shrimp in the Florida Keys many years ago and they were always in Atlantic Carpet Anemones so with most mushrooms being similar to these anemones, it's not that surprising to me that they host in it.
