Hairy mushrooms are very very hard to kill they are just settling in the tank and once they settle they will soon spread.

I tell you how hard they are to kill I removed some ages ago and must of left a tiny piece it grew into another mushroom i then thought i had scrapped it all off again but no it come back !!!!

I then putted over it for it to then grow out either side of the putty i then removed the rock as it was getting silly

So if you manage to kill them then something badly wrong
