Thankyou! Idk but those mushrooms spread like wildfire. I just got the fish a while back but am kind of nervous. He is an Arabian dottyback and I did not know they were aggressive. I heard they will kill your shrimp. I do have a peppermint shrimp somewhere. Altho I haven't seen him even before I put the dottyback in there but there is no tellin. I heard that since I put him in the tank after everything else then he should be fine. He's been great so far. Altho the clown fish do not like him getting near their mushroom rock on the left side. They tend to lay eggs there quite often.

It is called Anthalia (SP?) I bought it when it was like the size of my pinky tip and it spread all over that rock in the sand. A piece that the guy glued to the rock came off so I stuck it in the rocks Venus that one and it spread up the side like it did with in a few months. The growing of it has since then pretty much stopped which I'm kinda glad bc orient want it every where like the mushrooms.


Yes there are four bulbs. It is called a Catalina light fixture. They are 55watt T5 bulbs. Idk if they are the best but when I bought the tank from the previous owner it had a lowes/walmart setup on it and the bulbs weren't very good altho the mushrooms were alive. After I bought the Catalina set up is when the mushrooms took off. I've had a good experience with the light set up so I'm happy.

Thank you. I appreciate that. I try to take care of it. It's already very established so luckily I don't have to do much. All I'm using for filtration is a hang on filter from marineland.

Thanks! I have T5HO setup as well and will be going salt at some point. You tank looks really nice and it makes me feel better about my lighting!
