How would you interpret all the bubbles bouncing up? What would be your best guess thats happening?

My opinion is it will start to grow bigger bubbles as time goes on, I also think your color up is going to be amazing. I mean look at this ordinary green and blue... when I got it, it looked nothing like this bubbles if any more small.

@LRT I think you have a good piece that'll really show some growth and color.

That's a nice piece man!

And yeah just in last few weeks it has been throwing all kinds of bubbles. Some just round like the OG. And some more structured like my Frank. But nothing like the Minecraft so I'm ruling out any relation to that species.
I could also be totally wrong.
She is throwing nice color schemes some of her bubbles are toxic green, purple and red.
After closer review I do believe I see at least one baby forming away from the foot!

I'm going out on the limb at Rhodactis here. Same frilly vesicles around the cap as all my other bounces.

Some better pix-

Quick pic of Sunkist for comparison as this one here is throwing bubbles like crazy like the one in my original post-

What package deal is this???? where can i find one???
Lol I can't remember who I got it from now. I can tell you if your looking for anything in particular I'd start a thread in WTB. I've gotten a fairly decent collection of Bounces going and I got every single one of them from reefer here. More than a quarter of them freebies like the original one I posted here :)

You have yuma Shrooms which get these and eventually they dissipate. some call it bubble yuma
Right on. Typically how long before bubbles dissipate? Do they always dissipate? Hoping its the latter for this shoot. I have seen a Godzilla Yuma Bounce in a 3 yr old system that was full of bouncy bubbles.

Also would you consider all bounces to fall into Yuma Rhodactis gene pool?

Thank you for your input sir.

Would love to hear others experiences with bounce shoots. Gave me a great idea for new thread on bounce shroom discussion.
I'm curious as to what makes them Bubble. Is it limited to certain species although I've seen many species now with oddly structured, round bubbles. Wonder how long someone has been able to keep a bubbled up shoot bubbly. Is it parameters? Wonder if anyone has pulled one out of ocean with bubbles? Certainly intrigued about this whole thing.

OK I just went back through some photos.
I'm curious at which time shrooms digress and start losing the bubbles?
Is it parameters and stability?
All this Shroom has done is "Bubble" since my system has stabilized.
Nitrates 15-20.
Phosphates .15.
Salinity 1025.
Alk 9.8
Temps averaging 78 with less than 1 degree swing.
I haven't had more than a 1 point swing on anything in awhile.
Really took off when I bumped my phosphates up.
Seems like if anything this shroom is only blowing up since I've gotten my parameters dialed.

Here's a few progression pictures over last 4-5 months.
