What's up with my shrooms?

First got these they were all huge and spread out. They aren't as shriveled as the pictures show (they do open when lights are on) but what is the squiggly stuff coming out of areas? It's not just coming out of the mouth...

Parameters are spot on other that what I feel is a slightly low alk reading which I have been dosing to bring up very slowly. They were looking like this since before i started dosing so that has been ruled out.

Placement is a front corner so lower light levels (Tao LED's set lowest possible white and maybe 20% blues)...

Maybe it's getting blasted with too much flow bouncing off the corners of the tank?

They don't like something. That's their guts.

Are there common factors of distress? Certain parameters, temp, nitrates, etc? Physical forces like shrimp, hermits?

I suppose I can queue up a decent water change...

All/any of the above I suppose, though hermits or shrimp is a long shot since I don't believe they would stress out all the mushrooms simultaneously. Have you checked your current parameters?

I'll run a full test once I clean up the weekly 12" snow dump around the house and post them later. Hopefully I can figure this out.

Moved to a bit higher flow area, bit brighter in terms of light as well... Looking better.

Getting there for sure. They look a lot better. Still some guts hanging out but they're slowly retracting every couple days.
