There about the size of a nickel-quarter. The guy I bought them from said he had some red and green mushrooms and showed then to me but they weren't looking to good bc they has been in container with no light except a little sun on top. I looked up apatsia (sp) and only saw ones with tentacles. These have no tentacles. Do they start off with tentacles or do they get them later. Here's a different angle.

Ya there right its mushrooms. The larger one almost looked like an aiptasia with its tentacles balled up which is common when parameters are outta whack like during a cycle. Sorry for the scare just wasn't sure lol

Oh good, I see smaller ones on another rock but they don't look as alive as those. Any ideas on the snail? I rearranged some rocks does it look like it has enough caves, crevices, ect.

Ammonia is still at .05( kinda confused about this one.
Nirtrate 20
Nitrite 0

Any ideas why ammonia went drastically down 1st day and hasn't gone down since? Thanks.

Day 4 fish less cycle

Ammonia: 0
pH: 8.5
Nitrate: 15
Nitrite: 0

So, I added 2 tsps of ammonia( I found a calculator to get amount) to get it up to 4ppm again and see how long it takes to get it back down. How many times do I need to get it converted in 24 hrs before I know it cycled? Thanks.
