    Hi everyone

    I've seen hairy mushrooms the size of a saucer. I have tonga mushrooms that are the same size when fully open. Had them for 3 years but they have multiplied and all same size

    less than a year.
    It is a very shallow frag tank, so the mushrooms and rics are oversize.

    Not a banana so your measurements are meaningless :lol::tt2:
    Quick question, at that size, do they start to prey on small fish?
