I'm a girl you know.
So then I'm guessing you don't have a wife?! LOL! I was thinking that when I read the response. I think that we're few and far between in this sea of men!

I had some Xenia sitting on a toothpick on a rock. Before I left for vacation it had just started to touch down onto the rock (I didn't manage to get it all the way down onto the rock when I pushed it over the toothpick). When I got home it had come down onto the rock and moved away from the toothpick by a good inch or so, leaving not even a trace of a path. Very strange little animal there!

I have a beautiful mushroom. It is huge (5-6" across) and I'd love to frag it but I'm so fearful of losing it all together that I just don't have the nerve. It is the only one of its kind that I own. I'm not sure how new mushrooms grow, but there look to be small nub like things on the rock just under the shroom so I'm hoping that it will have a couple of babies. Then I won't mind messing with mom!

That is the best site for prop info
Agreed...What type of shrooms are you propagating? Did they slime up pretty bad? I hear the longer tentacled shrooms slime up pretty good and are more prone to protazoan infections, that's why most people prop in a tank other than their main. I did some red pimpled and green/purple metalics in my main and had no problems. Was stressed the whole time, but worth it in the long run. Gonna try ricordeas next? Good Luck electrikat.

Grow your own, save a Reef!

You can also prop by cutting the mom off leaving a little stub of the stalk. The stub will grow a new one and you can just put mom(whole) in a new location without cutting her up. This is how they do it on their own. That's why when the rock gets crowded the big ones will detach and float off and a new one will grow where that one was.

I did some reddish ones with purple/blue spots and I did one of the big hairy flourescent green ones. I fragged them in a bowl and then put them in the 20g, not back into the main. I also added fresh GAC to catch any toxins etc that they might have been releasing.

If you don't want to cut it up into pieces, you can just cut the cap off (relocate cap), and you will get another one or two that just grow from the piece left on the LR. I just slice the pieces left on the LR in half or quarters and you get a single shroom from each piece. You'd be surprised how quickly these guys can grow back.

I felt kinda bad about the hairy ones cause they are the ones my clowns have decided to host in . I downsized their home and I'm sure they noticed, they were giving me dirty looks this morning.
