Torches are really cool - just make sure you put a lot of space between it and other corals - they have really long sweeper tentacles.

I am going to try and find a torch coral today from a local seller. I know he has some but looking for a specific look. If I can't find one what should I get to bring color or just excitement to the tank. I like mushrooms but don't want a rock covered with them. I would like some that are loose and place them where I want them.

Ricordia mushrooms are very colorful and do great as stand alone additions. I'm up to six of them now.

I've had three for almost 6 months and one of them has gotten very big and it looks like its starting to split, but he two halves are still clinging together so it appears as one.

I had another that I bought a few weeks ago that already split.

Not sure what's par for the course.

I got two red mushrooms a while back that were loose I placed them where I wanted them one of them stayed the other floated to the back. They are set in there place but on is where you can't see. Should I try to take it off? Will I hurt it if I pull it off? I was thinking of cutting it in half and making two, is this a bad idea?

If you pull it off, you might rip it, which would just mean you would get another mushroom. Cutting it in half would give you two as well.

I heard a story from a guy at an LFS, that had a customer who would use a blender to chop up shrooms and grow hundreds of new ones!

If you cut it- make sure part of the mouth is on the new piece.
