Nitrates are a little high for inverts, I would suggest a few water changes. The salinity is also a tad low for inverts. 1.024-25 SG
) is best for most species. That won't necessarily fix the shrooms
problems though but it will improve the overall health of the tank.
Liquid life is actually a great product, I use it myself. Just be careful not to go overboard, a few squirts a week would be plenty for a young tank. As I said though, these types of additives rarely do anything to directly feed corals but will greatly boost the fauna populations that do.

That would be your primary reason for the shrooms
not doing so well. Until you get the MH
, place the shrooms
as high on the rock as possible but not in any heavy water flow. Once the MH
is in place be sure all the corals are placed close to or on the substrate and "light acclimate"
the tank to the new intensity.
