Hey everyone.

Just got a new green mushroom today, from my local fishstore and as i dripp acc the coral placed it i the tank it moves continously. More likely it wont open or just squeezes itself. Any idea?

Welcome. Great looking addition.

Like mentioned give it time. It will settle in. If it doesn’t settle in a spot you can place it in some sand and rubble. Sometimes it just needs a little help holding it in one area until it attaches.

Wasn't the mushroom attached to a rock or plug when you got it?
It should of been. Mushrooms aren't like anemones. They normally won't attach themself unless they are kept from moving. They have no control where the end up really.
You might have to take it out and use a piece of rubble or a plug in a container of water and let it attach to it.

This is a good idea! Unfortunately nature is silly and some of mine actually move around a lot on their own lol. Silly mushrooms!

Thanks everyone for the answer. It was attached to the rock as i bought it. It just seems not opening big and flat as it should. Its alive due to if a critter goes over it it closes more. It just wont open up fully. Well ill give it time. :) and let all you know.

And just another thing. I started to count the dorfins of my clowns and as far as i count its 7 for me . :D is it possible that the clowns are still young enough that the dorfins are not developed all the way? :)

Attached a nice pic so everyone can count. :)

Have a lovely day and keep reefing.

Where do you go in case of a real reef tank emergency?
