I dont know for sure but I do know that mushrooms are pretty much indestuctable. Can you get a pic.

I cant tell from the pics but make sure of pristine water conditions. I had one that got smashed one time and it made a comeback. Like I said indestructable.

People take scissors to them all the time to make more. It may just be a little freaked out. Don't panic. Like Mike said.. Indestructible. It may even float around your tank for a few days until it finds a place it likes.

Be patient.

Agree... indestructible. The white strings are most likely mesentary (sp?) fillaments - they're a form of weapon that corals use to take over areas, protect themselves, etc. I've seen them come out of the mouth of mushrooms when I'm snipping them at the base with scissors. (Yeah... I'm a mean pruner.)

I've fagged them before, they are quite resilient really! You can slice and dice and they come back for more!
