I have a Poletti jawbreaker that I got 6+ months ago. When I got it it was about the size of a nickel. It has shrunk down to like 1/2 of a Mini M&M, its TINY. It still has its color.
Its been in a cup out of direct flow for months. I am lost. Any ideas as to why this has happened? And what steps can I take to help it get back to normal.
Tank is 2-3 years old.

THANK YOU!

Take it out of the cup and maybe it will start growing. It's dying in the cup.

Other folks will ask about light, par, and for pictures of the tank to help provide better, more informed advice than I have to offer, thus far. I have had mixed luck with mushrooms over the years, when they grow they explode (population increases) and when they shrink, sometimes they drift to another spot in the tank, attach and thrive, or they just disappear. Yours seems to be on the last track, time for a change. good luck with it.

Everytime I see "JawBreaker" I think of Willy Wonka and the "Everlasting Gobstopper." I hope your jawbreaker turns around and lasts like a Gobstopper.
