New Toadstool

I picked up a toadstool tonight... it's only about two to three inches high.... a light blue color.... and I'm wondering.... this sucker seems a little "stiffer" than the one's I've seen in pictures... he also doesn't really have any of the "knobbies" on his toadstoolie surface... will he get much bigger???? any ideas on placement????

Congrats on your prchase! Give it some time to settle in and it will be fine. They will tolerate varying levesl of light and flow. I have mine under moderate light and pretty high flow. (powerheads are on a wave maker so it ets bursts of flow). These things will grow like crazy and are very hardy when provided with the proper conditions. Lando

Ya give it some time, and they are very hardy. I have one that had algae build up on it so bad that the poylps would not extend. I put it in a higher flow, but the algae would not go away. After about a week of no poylps, I started scraping. I dont recommend this, but I couldnt stand it no more. I tried to blow it off first with a baster, but it didnt work. So I started scraping as gently as possible. As soon as I was done, here came the poylps. Cool piece! Congrats!

Ok.... I used rubberband to attach the toadstool.... I got really sick of trying to use the super glue gel...... I'm wondering... how long do the rubberbands need to stay there for it to attach???

that's what I'm hoping will happen with mine...... I picked mine up for twenty bucks...... the LFS pretty much sells any soft "coral" for 20/25 bucks...... I'm diggin it..... without a doubt my favorite piece in the tank so far.... and it hasn't even opened up fully yet.......
