So i will not feed mushrooms, dont want to increase algea growth.
My mushroom ended in plastic box, because during night even low flow starts to moving him..
Also I introduce new coral to tank and will be waiting for green star polyp :)
What are those little green/yellow hair on main aquascape stone? Doesn't seems like diatoms.
Aquarium is about 2 months old.

Just a small plastic dish ( tupperware, empty food container, etc.) will work.
All you are trying to do is corral the mushroom in a small space until it settles down ( out of the tank flow) and attaches to sand or small rubble. Once it has sand attached to the bottom, that can be glued to your rockwork.
I use specimen containers for this (like the ones you pee in at the doctor) One of my lfs sells them for 50 cents, my other lfs just gives them to me. Besides that, the dollar store is a reefers best friend. I buy super glue, my dosing containers, coral dip containers, turkey basters etc from there.
