Spreading Shrooms ?

I just returned from a three day trip tonight and noticed a single green shroom on the substrate at the opposite side of the tank from the rock that the other green shrooms are on.

Is this normal? I guess I assumed they would slowly spread out from the original rock to the surrounding area. This one obvoiusly detached itself and reattached on the subsrate.

Do any other corals spread this way (polyps etc.)? I know my Kenya tree coral has dropped branches twice now that have reattached elsewhere.



Tank: 90 Gal SW Reef in the making

See my info for setup and inhabitant details:

Yeah, I believe that's pretty normal. I have stray shrooms and zoos everywhere from them dropping.
