Mushroom help

Can anyone tell me what would make my Mushrooms turn translucent? My water is all good and I have two Marineland Reef LEDs on a 72 gallon bow front tank.

Thanks,

One of mine became translucent from the light because it is bleached. Move it into the shade, it might come back. Mine is trying...good luck

What's your calcium like if there isn't enough calcium in the water they can go whitefish or translucent

Calcium is at 400, So I don't think it's that.

Thanks

Mushrooms are soft corals and don't need a lot of calcium. Its definitely bleached move to shade or lower its position in the tank. Bleached means it has expelled its zoaxanthelae, an algae That live in the corals and give it its color.

It really depends on your setup. Some need more for example ricordias and others don't.
