what are your tank conditions

nitrite, nitrate, ammonia, ph, salinity

also if you could include the type of lighting (although not so important with mushrooms)

Yea, there more towards middle of the tank, but the light hits them directly, the 2nd one is almost completely gone now just shrivels up and goes away now the last one is starting to turn brown on the outside, but i got other mushrooms and polpys and all that, which are all fine and growing and whatnot, maybe i just got some bad ones i dunno
