You may not know them yet, but if you ever need to feel completely inadequate about your mushroom collection, or enabled to add to it, check out @LRT or @MERKEY 's collections.
I was really into zoas bit then realized they are great but kind of overrated. I still like them don't get me wrong. I change favorite corals every year or so.. I am not into the bouncy mushrooms too expensive for me. So my favorites are whatever I can ge thr best bang for my buck.
Finally scored an Alceopora at the swap. Had my radar tuned in for one of these for a while now.

It's nothing fancy but looks great in the tank.

Printer can run in the background. And if it weren't for the rain today it would be water tight from the outside. I'll let you know.

I didn't even know that was a thing so I googled it and came across this.

I'm sure there are people that can 3D print this or something similar. Now I want some too!!!!

So what is does is trap the shroom till it attaches to something?
Yes I believe it helps them in case the decide to detach and blow around. I am having that issue now with a nem in my 10g office tank. So I modified a specimen cup until I can get a better solution. It's already gotten stuck in the overflow once and I'd rather not have that happen again.
