Actually... the cleaner shrimp was being a pest while I was trying to just get the acans. So I zoomed out a little and included him in the shot. No waiting involved.
Yeah... the stylophora is an SPS
. Stylophoras are one of the lower light tolerant SPS
corals. It's really high up in the tank, but still just under 200W of power compacts. I've had it since November last year, and it hasn't died on me yet. But then again, it's not really thriving either. It's put on a couple additional "nubbins" since I've gotten it, and I noticed the other day it's starting to sprout another one. But the growth rate has been pretty slow.
Those mushrooms started with just four on a single rock, back in September of last year. That clump now has spread over a couple other rocks, and I've found them floating around in my tank too. In fact, I just "stuck" one on that brown zoanthid rock. I'm thinking if I trade that colony in to the LFS
, maybe having some mushrooms on it will help the trade in value.
