Also called Lavender mushroom for the base color, they can spread quickly. I bought 1 8 mushroom colony years ago, I now have probably 20 and have traded about 10. They can definitely sting other stuff like mentioned before though and can get pretty big. I've had one shroom 4" in diameter at least! Should do well for you.

Many corals have no defined "life span". They live for centuries.....or longer. I have mushroom corals in my tank that I've had for around 25 yrs.

Mushrooms are among the hardiest and easiest of corals to take care of. Not much light\care needed as compared to some SPS etc.
