Shroom Splitting?

Post by danielmiller82 » Sun Aug 29, 2004 8:07 pm

Is my shroom splitting? ever since I got it, it was wide open...by this morning I saw it like this. It looks like the edge at the top is starting to tear. It has been noticeably growing in last couple of weeks. almost 50% bigger then when I put it in the tank 3 weeks ago.

Can you tell if it has 2 mouths? Usually a good way to tell. From the pic it looks like its trying to split. I have a recordia that will split to be 3 IF it ever splits. Its has 3 noticeable mouths on it also.

You can slice it from the mouth to the outer edge of the pedal to force a split, or constrict it with a rubberband.

Some of us wish it was that easy. I have thought about trading in some of my liverock to get rid of some of them. I only have a 100 gallon tank and there are only a few pieces that have mushrooms on them now. They spread to quick to stop.
Wanted: to set up a tank again.

I can honestly say that Terry is INFESTED with them... his current philosophy is only to keep the top 12" of his rock clean, for his SPS, the bototm 6-8" or so, is a mushroom FOREST, the most cool, huge mushrooms you'll ever see.

Probably a stupid solution, but when I have a batch of zoanthids or mushrooms getting out of control, I set my hammer coral beside them.. That seems to thin things out a bit.

Wow, now that I look at it again, I think you're right, but it looks like something else too. :shock:
