It looks cool, but it can be a bit invasive.

Aware thanks X... Ever hear "happy wife, happy reef tank"? She likes it, and it allowed me to get a $75 wall hammer I was drooling over 😉

I had some in my last 40 and it didn't grow... Something was somehow thwarting it, and my palys/zoas were going crazy... I'm hoping for the same selectivity...

Any consistent reason why 50% of my mushrooms look like they just swam in some cold water?

I'm gonna be picking up some phytoplankton today... Haven't had a chance to get to the LFS that sells it, and all I have is Rods Original fish only food. Anything else the softies like to snack on?

I feed my Duncan and dendro rods fish only food. They seem to like it. Maybe try a bit with the shrooms?

Do shrooms actually accept food like Duncan's do? And should I spot feed?

Phyto is a waste IMO. I suggest something large enough (perhaps mysis, or at least cyclopeeze) for that large mouth to be of use.

Fair enough. I'll give the rods a go next feeding...
