Just starting to show the turquoise again after the move to less flow a few days ago. :)

Simon its crazy how some of my shrooms react to flow. Majority love it but some start balling up at the slightest hint. When I had both wave makers running when I set up shroom lagoon I literally lost my magic carpet booger, 2 Green poletti jb babies and had a few let go of foothold. Im still not happy with flow. I need to build a rock tunnel to divert my flow down from returns and push to front and back of tanks so I can remove WaveMaker all together. It worked well in tubs just need to figure it out. I may bite bullet and cut some fake shelf rock up!

When I first got ruffles, I had to rearrange it several times to find a position where he was comfortable, and didn’t lift up 24/7.

For sure. Some of them will sprawl out and let skirt wave in the right amount of flow. When they scrunch up and move while stressed tells me its to much. I try to stick with 0 direct flow now. Over the top is fine just nothing on them.

My problem is flow and I don't learn, I might have a colony of interstellar bounce in the scape, that hurt when it let go and there are lots more. I am working out the flow around the rock these are on and will get the shrooms tucked in around it.

Totally. My flow hits just at the top of all my shrooms. This allows them to still have some flow/movement, but it’s not direct and too much.

This tangerine bounce that I got from @Joe Knows Reefs Summer sale looks like it might be close? As you can see, it’s edges look ruffled and the mouth has been open for a while. It’s also developing more “tangerine” colored dots on top. :D

It would be AWESOME if this thing split, it’s one of my favorite shrooms!!

They will do all that and more when they are splitting but they will also do that in to much light and flow so you never know. Some shrooms never split. Some just leave foot babies.. Some split multiple times a month. Ive had one take a year to split. I look for shrooms that start randomly doing wierd things.
A good tell tale sign for splitting is the foot will start pinching in middle like figure 8. Best seen at lights out.

Tbh the 2 rhodactis look uncomfortable id split them up a bit. I let my same shroom babies grow all over eachother and mama but I keep a little room between all my shrooms regardless of same species. Nothing more to it than personal space. I bet they open up for ya

Quick update.
I know I said I wasn't going to touch my lamp but the current light schedule is working out really well. Feel like I got lights on ramp up pretty much on point at this time. Some shrooms are cupping it is what it is. Some shrooms are getting a little bit to much. Just trying to find happy medium. Had to turn down my whites. Its definetely the brighter channels making most uncomfortable. Some of the shrooms love it brighter so tank 2 will be running a hotter brighter schedule and most likely end up over there as ill be able to find spots and give them exactly what they need:D

More lousy wize cam spam haha man I can't wait to get home today!:D Magic Carpet is blowing up since I changed light schedule. Those are 5" tiles for refference. If she continues to go at this rate she will have tile full in next month or 2.
Check out baby minecraft booger. Looks like she's gonna explode off her perch:D
Trying to get decent picture of this yuma under godzilla. Just gonna call it blurple for now. Hopefully get a good one tonight so I can have yall tell me what color the cap actually is. Looks like its loving the move or maybe it just likes being around godzilla haha idk sorry about the crappy pix but some pretty exciting things are happening on the reef right now.
