My Mushrooms are moving??

On two seperate occasions, I've watched as my mushrooms (one hairy, one green stripped, approx. 1 inch) began to close up by pulling thier edges up and toward their center. The First time, the hairy started to do this then layed flat again. the other is fairly closed up and looks like an upside down bell. This happens at night. My water is good as is lighting. Is this something I should be concerned about? If so What can I do to help them out?

THA

Calvin

yeah they do this all the time. nothing to worry about. mine do it when i drop food into them like they particularly like pieces of shrimp. but don't be alarmed. this is natural. look at my gallery i have a pic of mine just after feeding time.

I agree, this is normal behavior for shrooms

Wait until they start to move around the tank.

Remember these things are alive.
