Mushroom smell like water chestnuts. Especially if you cut them. Do not add them to your salad.

I disagree every time I have cut one it smelled like fish especially after it starts to slime but maybe there is something I am missing? Then again I have never actually looked for that certain smell to come from a mushroom.

I LOVE water chestnuts (in casseroles and in salads), but mushrooms from the tank that have been cut don't smell that way to me. Do you cleanse them with something? Everything in the tank that comes out smells fishy to me!!

I feel like even if u could eat coral u wouldn't want to. The textures are just all wrong. Obviously sps are totally out, as with lps. That really only leaves softies and nems. Neither seems appealing. Most of it seems like big hunks of slime or grisle. Ich, and i don't mean the parasite!
