I tried to move a baby Recordea Yuma Mushroom. It came loose from where I put it and I couldn’t find it for a couple days. Now I see it has landed and attached to my Montipora Capricornis. It is on a section where I glued it to the rock and is in the shade so I believe that part of it is actually dead because It is bleached out. My question is will these 2 get along or try to kill each other?

The shroom will move and can leave more bare spots. Use a turkey baster and try to dislodge it and place in a cup with rock rubble until it attaches itself to rock then set in desired location

Hi. I did what you suggested. I have it in a container with a little rock. The turkey baster worked easily. When I saw the picture sent by Lost in Space, it made me think maybe I didn’t need to move it. Oh well. Better safe than sorry. Thanks again.

Is that picture legit? I already moved the mushroom but now I’m wondering if I could have left it alone.

Yes the picture is legit. Do you see the destruction to the trumpet under the mushroom? Nothing but skeleton. Confused....

And I thought they were all good. I know nothing.
Gotcha, nope. This was a shot from when I took over this tank with a hundred mushrooms in it. They had overgrown almost everything killing most things they encountered. This candy cane is just shy of a volleyball size, and 1/3 was killed off from the invading mushroom.

But it doesn’t hurt the monte?

I also had half an encrusting monte killed by the same mushroom type. There was a lot of mushroom induced skeletons when I bought the tank. . honestly at least a dozen and those are just ones I know the mushroom killed.

Hmm. Then I guess I am glad I moved it and will try to keep my mushrooms away from the others. They alway seem so peaceful.
