I picked up a toadstool about 4 days ago. For a while I was nervous because it wasnt looking to hot in my tank. But after 24 hours it was all opened and seemed okay except for the fact that its not standing up straight. Its like its stalk cant hold it up. It looks like the base of the coral isnt doing well. Its pretty much the same from when I bought it, but I thought it was normal and just stress. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Get a rubber band and a hunk of rock, hold the rock and toadstool I'm one hand and wrap the rubber band around the rock and go over the toadstool preferably thru the middle now if you leave the rubber band on for longer than two weeks the toadstool will grow around it and you will end up with 2. Then you can super glue the smaller rock to a larger rock where ever u want him but he would need a high flow area to help him shed

The tissue looks like it's dissolving a bit on the stalk. If so you may have to cut some of it off. When I propagate these guys I usually use the rubberband method for pieces of the cap but if it has a long stalk I prefer the method seaweed mentioned (natural attachment).
