    How long does it usually take for you mushrooms to mount to rubble in the cups. I just got some orange Yuma’s and I have them in a cup with some plugs hoping they will attach

    Oh sorry, I missed this!

    not that long, maybe 3-6 days depending on the shroom itself. The trick is it needs SOME flow, but obviously not too much. If given zero flow, they will detach and sometimes melt within the cups. Ideally you would poke some holes into the cups to allow a little extra flow.

    Otherwise, most of them go into cups AFTER they've been attached to a frag plug or rubble.

    Thanks my tank has a lot of flow so the shrooms were swirling around in the cup a bit. They have now settled down and it looks like they attached to the rubble I put in there. Going to let them settle in and then I’ll attach them where I want in the tank

    Just a few pictures of a few corals I've been testing the water with. A few nice pieces but things look good so it's safe for now!

    Fantastic. Your taste in coral is mind blowing. Happy to hear the dino troubles have passed and you are ready for more stocking up. :)

    Best wishes going forward.

    Wow, those are pretty.
    Even your frag rack is pretty too.
    The rack will be full quickly again.

    Yep, everything is at a few friends houses. The things on the rack now will be tossed to other tanks except one or two frags. Mostly it's just tester junk on the frag racks right now.

    Yes I have a few high end zoas but mostly SPS, acans, and shrooms.

    Pretty much!


    So some interesting news... I'm starting up a grow out frag tank. Definitely excited lol.

    They're at my friends house still haha



    Just a bit! It's an 8x2x1 frag tank that will house nothing but high end SPS. It'll be awhile to get some of them to grow out, but it's a pretty nice start.
