There are probably about 500 mushrooms here throughout the system.

I bought about a dozen, four different kinds. Most of the mushroom growth happened in about 5 years. It is stable now. The tank is 275 gallons, system is about 450 gallons. This reef is almost 20 years old now.

It's when it gets older that it gets interesting.

I'm curious what that is in the center, the tower. And what you have your frag rack made from.

Yes, I made a couple of these to transition frags to the main tank. Just black egg crate wire tied together. They are covered in pink algae, for some reason it likes to grow on them. I will take a close up, but a piece of purple tipped acro accidentally touched the back of one of these, now I have that coral growing on the egg crate. Starts as a green hard slime looking material and then one day it starts sprouting little towers. Really neat.
