Mushroom overload! What to do?

Is it bad? I'm getting mushrooms like CRAZY! There just popping up everywhere. How do you frag them? Some really swell up during the day. There very pretty but are everywhere. All colors and types.

To frag, slice them off the rock and cut them like a pizza. Thatll just get you more though, so i dont think that will fix anything! Haha if you mean frag off the rock, ya i think just cut them off at the bottom

Dude that would be awesome, and you have such a variety. Its funny, none of my lfs's ever get shrooms, and they are usually pretty common. You should maybe try to turn in some for credit!!

I'm in New York. If really interested PM and we'll work something out. I have to research how to frag(I guess that's what it's called) the mushrooms off the rocks. There's literally 100's all over. From bottom(sand bed) to top near outlet. All colors and types. And my Yuma had babies if that makes sense. It moved over and now I have 5 including the original. I must be doing something right lol. I can't keep chaeto alive though lol.

Your in for a challenge. At the rate you describe and the amount if them you will have a hard time keeping them to a reasonable population.

Mushrooms are very hardy. You can simply cut them off the rock with a razor or scalpel however the foot attached to the rock will grow into another mushroom. Best bet is to get a dremel and cut the sections of rock off. That the mushroom is attached too. Hard to kill them by fragging. Ive seen people put them in blenders and then put the soup in a dish to attach to some like rock rubble or just dump straight in the tank where the bits attach to rock and grow lol.

I'm overwhelmed with PM's lol. I'm gonna figure everything out, I need to learn how to take them off without damaging them. Then I have to figure a price and shipping method.
