Oh yes. They move.
Whoaaa I was not aware of that. lol
Now this poor guy is all crumpled up! I feel sad for him. I guess if I try to help him I'll just tick him off though?
Thanks so much, @Jay1661! Do you have a build thread? I'll have to go check it out! I always like seeing what people do with their Biocubes!
Oh man. Those little guys are the best.
After all the rubber band , glue , put them in a cup bla bla advice I got. I just let them do what they want.
They'll find the flow they like and usually stay put there
Will do! Nothing that is. lol
This is so crazy. I did not realize they could move like this!
Right!!! Imagine my surprise when I first paid 40 for a tiny lil one and it walked to the back of the tank.
This is bonkers.
Our first mushroom (Booger) moved too. I didn't know either. The guys at the lfs only laughed a little and explained it. Ok, they laughed a lot.
Ha! My first ricordia , I set in the tank to make up its mind.
My porcelain crab, Al, (anemone crab btw) tried to host it. So he wore it around the tank holding it on his head. He loved that poor shroom to death , literally.
Whaaaat?! Omg I did not know any of that could happen. Lol! RIP shroom
Hahaha I'm glad I have you guys so I don't have to embarrass myself at the LFS (at least not as often)
Tank invert appreciation
Nice pics Tiki!!
Looks like you tamed that shroom.
Not really. He has since moved all the way across the tank and is BFFs with the toadstool now.
I think he's looking for less light
You are probably quite right! I’m not sure how to help him out other than letting him hide where he wants!
Try pulling back the sand under the edge of your rock in the front. Mine like little mini caves. Try the middle of your bottom left rock. Use two fingers to scoop out just a little sand at the edge.
Aw, cute! Will do. Thanks!
This weekend I installed (with my trusty husband assistant) a new pump, the Cobalt MJ1200. It works! It’s not the power output I was imagining, but it must be a little better.
I also moved my corals around some. The roving mushroom had stuck himself underneath my toadstool leather, but when I decided to move the leather he got very upset. @Katrina71, I made a nice little cave for my sad mushroom and he is very happy there now!
But now, my toadstool is not happy! He was doing so well but I thought I would like him higher in the tank so I moved the little rock he’s on to be about 3 inches higher. He is mad! He didn’t extend his polyps at all yesterday after I moved him, and today he’s only just barely got them starting to poke out.
Do you think he is stressed by the light? I thought maybe the flow was different so I tried to move it away from him but I don’t know.
