So I read some place that if a mushroom does not open all the way it is a good indication that there is something wrong with your water. Is this true and what does it mean?

I've heard this as well but I've had mushrooms that didnt open one day and were fine the next with no water change or anything in between.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
