Sick mushroom possibky??

Hey. I recently purchased a colony of mushrooms and they did very well the first 3 days but now they seem to not be opening fully. Some zoas I purchased at the same time were not doing well also and i contacted my local fs and was directed to dip them in lugos. I did and they are doing wonderful. My question...Is it safe to dip my mushroom and would it even be beneficial if I did. If so how do I dip them? I am trying to see if I can put a pic up of the mushrooms

Dip it the exact same way you dipped the zoas. I always dip new corals before they go into my tank to kill any pests. You can get some nasty hitchhikers if you don't.
