Why not just superglue them to some rubble?

Mushrooms will keep moving untill settled on rock or in the place they want to be get a small tuperware tub few bits of rubble or small peices of rock put the mushrooms in too elastic band a net over the top place in tank in gentle flow and they should attach after a few days to a week then place them were you want them... Always worked for me and i now have a colony

Mushrooms are not true corals. They are corralimorphs, somewhere between coral and anemone. Like anemones, mushrooms can and will move. It is perfectly normal. They also move when reproducing assexually. They bud off a small portion and the main and child mushroom will move apart. This is normal for them, but not for true corals.
