I run my lights for 11-12 hours on a day. As for shrooms, if you know what kind of lighting they came from, try to place them in a similar spot in your tank. If they come from a MH lit tank, place them higher up in your tank if they come from a PC lit tank you can probably place them mid-tank. Mushrooms don't like strong direct current, so keep that in mind too. Otherwise they are hardy and almost impossible to kill so they should adapt to your tank quite well.
