He has a split in that one side, about 1/2 inch long.
Really hard to tell. My ric is massive and hasn’t split. I’m not sure how rics multiply. I have one that sorta split but never finished

Interesting. Ok, I’ll just keep my eye on it. It seems like rho’s split much faster and easier than ric’s… no clue why.

One of my lfs had a ric rock that had 10-15 mouths and a few of them looked like they where dripping/melting/stretching from top to bottom rack. Not sure what it takes for some rics to split.
You need to talk to it. Take it out to dinner. Baby it. Lol

Because they are different types of mushrooms probably. I would say if it is a ric and doesn’t have two mouths it’s just being weird.and even if it has two mouths it may not split. I have one with 3 mouths. It is content to eat with all three and not split. I know @Lost in the Sauce has rics with multiple mouths that haven’t split

Yeah probably subspecies within the species. Ive seen the split into singles as well as just keep growing mouths. The ones that split into singles remind me more of a ric yuma like my baby booger mama
It sure would be nice to be able to easily propagate because I have a few I would definitely do it to if I had no fear of losing both halves

@LRT i
That toxic bounce was touching a ric. That ric looked very unhappy! So gave it more room .
It’s the little ric that the bounce was touching.

Interesting. Yeah I'm real careful with mixing species together. Never had anything happen but seen the horror stories. I try to keep all my same species around eachother.
Before I moved my powder brown it knocked my grafted cap over onto a Yuma for maybe 5 minutes before I noticed it. Everywhere the cap touched the Yuma the cap immediately bleached.

I tried to cut a cpl Florida rics with multiple mouths. Lost all them all.
Some people say they have success cutting them and very well may have. If they are cutting in super healthy, stable dialed system.
At the end of the day id love to hear real stats on survival rate at 6-12 months;)

Well I got into mushrooms accidentally so definitely didn’t plan for them. So all mushrooms are on one side of the tank.

I am definitely gonna rethink my scape when I have to move and may try and do a little bit better at organizing and making the tank make sense

Yes. At my LFS, they have a rubble piece that has a ric that’s split 3 times, and each one is the size of a nickel! It’s crazy.

To me I see distinct difference in subspecies. Not sure I can say I've seen a ric yuma with multiple mouths. I can usually tell them apart next to eachother.
Girl at my lfs call a shroom yuma rhodactis last time I was there. I haven't been able to find that classification anywhere. I could totally be wrong but I think even lfs make errors with certain species especially when they resemble eachother so close.
