    Is this a bunce shroom? I got a rock with two of these and two babies for $150
    The orange things are bubbles, but it doesn't look too much like the wwc one. If it's not a bounce shroom, what is it?
    It's about 2.5 inches in diameter:

    Maybe a St Thomas Mushroom?

    Aquanerd has the name wrong! That's not a st. Thomas mushroom nor is this. This is a rhodactis and as far as I know wwc's bounce is also a rhodactis

    Agreed on rhodactis.

    It is a nice morph though.

    I know it's a rhodactis just looking for a common name.
    Thanks!

    This source says it's a wwc bounce with orange bubbles:
    Corallimorphs with split personalities ? Advanced Aquarist | Aquarist Magazine and Blog

    So I guess I got the wwc bounce for $75 per mushroom and two babies for free!
    A bit more justified of a price if you ask me.

    It's a nice rhodactis. Definitely not a wwc bounce.

    I am not too sure why some bounce shrooms go for so much $$, but if the bubbles grow more then yours should fetch some nice money too.
    Either way they look very nice
