Hi there! Welcome to the forum!

Could they have dislodged and floated away? I have a huge shroom covered rock and they constantly relocate themselves. lol

How is your water? Ammonia, trites, trates?

I have shrooms sprouting up between rocks and behind them, I would take a real good look and see if they are floating or maybe they found a new home. It is possible for them to pretty much disinegrate, I just purchased one online adn it literally melted over night.

But they are one of the hardiest corals so chances are they are just somewhere else in the tank. lol

How big is your tank btw? And how much live rock?

We love pictures here also, so when you have a chance we'd love to see your tank.

Ok, cool, looking forward to seeing your setup. In that big of a tank and that amount of rock the shrooms could be anywhere. lol
