So I dragged my OG Bounce today, and upon placing the two pieces back in to the tank I saw that one had moved from its plate fairly quickly. Almost within a couple of minutes. I glued it to the plug again just to see it move a few minutes later. The second time it moved it was surrounded by my clean up crew. I walked away for about 10 minutes and returned to a missing bounce mushroom. I thought it could have crawled away, but I literally can’t find it and when I returned I saw 4 snails in the spot that I originally left my mushroom.
Are any thoughts on this? Is it possible that my clean up crew just destroyed my frag? Very frustrating

Yes very possible. This is why I got rid of all my hermits. They gather on my monti breaking branches off. Before and after pics.

wait are you glueing the mushroom to a frag plug? The slimy coating of a mushroom doesn't allow the glue to adhere the shroom to the plug which is why yours may have been "moving" so much. I am thinking your mushroom is floating around the tank not consumed by your CUC
