PostSubject: SHROOMS!!!!   Sun Jun 02, 2013 11:11 pm

AS some of you may know I plan on specializing on Mushroom corals, such as Discosoma, Rhodactus, Atinodiscus, and soon Ricordia and Amplexadiscus. Since my coral bloom I have been able to care for a wider range of of coral, and with some coral such as Monticap and well, shrooms they spread like weeds and compete for territory. I have been amasing a huge collection of mushrooms and seek more and more.....here is my current list-
=-=-Discasoma-=-=
Red
Orange
Green
Purple
(Soon) Magenta
Super Green Spotted
(Soon) Blue Spotted
Camo with blue speckles
Grey Blotched with purple speckles

=-=-Rhodactus-=-=
Green
Red
Brown fuzz with green skin

=-=-Atinodiscus-=-=
Green Tipped
Blue Tipped
Berrylicous (Blue with Purple Blotches)

I got these and more....I recently picked up the Blue tip at the Premium aquarium. I plan on picking up the Magenta and Blue Spotted from BadXgillen...I hope to eventually move out my other corals and replace my current light to be better suited for mushroom corals. My Halide works wonders for corals....but being such a bright light above a 20gal anything above half way up the tank dies......

Once they really start chugging along the mushrooms will spread.I would thin out the herd some and maybe make up a mushroom bed by plumbing in another small tank and keeping the extras there.That many mushrooms in your main tank and thats all you will have before too long.

Hmm I do want to set up another salt water tank in the future but as of right now I can't due to the lack of room. Actually, I am trying to grow out my mushroom corals as fast as I can so can trade em up and get new mushrooms

Ha ha my collection has been rapidly growing.....I have recently added three new shrooms to it....I recieved a baby blue spot and my majenta shroom....I also discovered that perhaps some of my fuzzys are not as colorful as anticipated...even under LEDs and such....so I believe I have brown mushrooms as well...not to mention a few shrooms from before my tank crashes have been popping up behind my live rock. From close observation of these guys I think one of the is a another green and one may be some form of grey skinned shroom...patently waiting for them to retrieve their full color....

=-=-Discasoma-=-=
Red
Orange
Green
Purple
(New) Magenta
Super Green Spotted
(New) Blue Spotted
Camo with blue speckles
Grey Blotched with purple speckles

=-=-Rhodactus-=-=
Green
Red
Brown fuzz with green skin
(New)Rainbow

=-=-Atinodiscus-=-=
Green Tipped
Brown.....
Blue Tipped
Berrylicous (Blue with Purple Blotches)

I will see about digging up my old modded Aqua Clear that was a mini shroom factory.I turned the back compartment into a lighted refugium then placed crushed coral and rubble in the back olong with mushroom cuts.They had a pretty fast heal rate.

Did that AC work out for you? did you fill it with Shrooms already? I am sure you did,and if you did not let me know I have since acquired a few more specimens you may be interested in.
