Hey all!

So recently I bought a couple of green mushroom frags and put them into my tank about a week and a half apart. The first one seems very happy and opened up fully, the second one however is a different story.

It would appear to be dragging its self off its small piece of rock to the point it's almost upside down, is this normal?

I bought the mushrooms as everything I've read suggested that they are very hardy and excellent beginner corals. I understand that some of the more advanced care corals can move position but I wasn't aware that this was a feature of the mushroom.

Any thoughts?

Hi! Do you have a photo? That may help.
Mushrooms can move, or more shuffle to a preferred spot. That could be what it's doing.
Have you checked your water parameters? Always a good place to start when anything is unusual.

They are usually very hardy. I had one that got squashed in its bag being moved and fell onto the substrate. It sulked upside down for a few days (i thought it was a x shroom) then decided to move to the rock next to it and set up a new home.
If it's still sulking in a few days maybe move it to another spot .

Well he's gone, finally detached and drifted off somewhere in the tank. I'm sure it will appear again soon.
