to me it looks like Rhodactis inchoata, which is more commonly named a bullseye mushroom.

shrooms will expand and contract for a lot of various reasons. To much lighting, not enough lighting, water quality, etc. I don't know how long you have had the mushroom but I have noticed that any time move or transport them, change lighting or water perameters that they will shrink down for a little while but will usually come back out with no adverse affects.
Btw, I just recently moved from ogden to clearfield just before christmas.

I have 440watts of lighting by vho, is that too much? I dont think so because my red shroom closed then opened back up.

Mushrooms are pretty adaptive to lighting changes and I think 440 vho is on the high side but not too much. Most shrooms also don't like a lot of flow, so if you see it blowing around it may need to be relocated to a spot with lower flow.

he blows every few hours or so I would say, and the moving it part will be hard because my buttons need the light and the shroom is near the polyps but not too near.

It doesn't sound like its getting too much flow. Give it some time and it will more than likely adapt to the new conditions.
