Scary creatures. It's awful to watch a fish trapped in one, because what do you do? I only belatedly thought---maybe a needle or pin might cause the shroom to open a bit, but I'm not sure it would work. Surely it wouldn't hurt the shroom too much. The one that got my blenny, back in the day, was an elephant ear.

You do, do, do have to consider the habits of your fishes when going to mushrooms, because more than one species of shroom has this unhappy reflex.


Salinity 1.024-6; alkalinity 8.3-9.3 on KH scale; calcium 420; magnesium 1300, temp 78-80, nitrate .2. Ammonia 0. No filters: lps tank. Alk and cal won't rise if mg is low.

Current Tank Info: 105g AquaVim wedge, chromis, royal gramma basslet, tailspot blenny, ocellaris clown, yellow watchman, chestnut turbo snails, bristleworms, couple of hermits.
