What to do with mushrooms in tank?

I have a very healthy and large group of mushrooms growing in my tank. I know this will cause a few folks to cringe, but I've just tossed the mushrooms that come off of the main group. Currently I've got about 4 mushrooms on the bottom of my tank (in the sand).....I've tried stuffing them into areas of the lr but they always end up surfing around the tank. Does anyone have any suggestions on anchoring these guys? I kinda hate to keep on tossin 'em.

Well if you would like I'll gladly give you my address and you can send them to me. If you are trying to get them to attach to rock then you will need to put them on a rock in a low flow area so they can attach. They are like anemones in that way, they wont grab hold until they are happy.

I`ve taken some fishing line and tied them to rock and after they reattach cut the line off.

Tell you what, if you were closer I'd give them to you! .....along with several kenya tree starts and a huge torch coral (that really likes to sting, sting, sting-it's neighbors) and one very naughty yellow tang that I refer to as the "tank nazi"

Thanks to both of you folks for the info. I'll going to try the fishing line trick.

I have reattached mushrooms to smaller rocks via super glue gel. Another option is to bag 'em up and take them to the LFS for in-store credit.

I like Lando's suggestion too. Call your LFS and see if you can get credit/money for them. Make it work to your advantage.

I definitely agree with taking them to the LFS for store credit. I do it all the time. The LFS know that people love shrooms.

Wow, thank you all very much for the input. I'm heading out to pick up some rubble to attach the mushrooms to.

Now, if I haven't used up all of questions yet, I do have one more. I have many (underline MANY) kenya tree starts growing in my tank. How do I remove them from the lr? I don't necessarily want to keep them, but they are growing everywhere! Can I just remove them while they're in the tank (scrape them off the rock)? My tank is looking very "full" with corals and I'd like to "clean" it up some.

Thanks very much for all of the information.
