I can understand the shell turning green but my actual snail turned green too

Well hopefully picking out a few frags tomorrow. Water tested good. Will probably introduce some mushrooms, a leather and maybe some zoas or polyps.

Corals have adapted well already. Just picked up a pair of red mushrooms and some bright green mushrooms. Currently on a drip.

Ok so everyone seems to have different success with mushrooms so I'm leaning to y'all for advice. I have 4 mushrooms. 2 green and 2 reds on one piece of frag rock. Since I've brought them home they've stayed shriveled up. Not sure where the best placement is. I have 2 phs. One on each side of the tank plus the return in the middle of the tank. They are set right about the middle of the tank under 4 T-5 lights. Good water quality and flow. What am I doing wrong?

Below is a pic of them tonight.

So I swapped out one of my actinic bulbs that looked a little dim and WOW what a difference. I replaced with a German Fiji purple bulb and the corals look great. The frogspawn has really opened up as well as the mushrooms. I'll post pics later. Just cleaned the glass and did a water change
