    Hallo, can someone please help? I got blue as well as green mushroom coral in my tank for almost 5 months now and today some of the blue mushrooms just inflate. What is the reason for this?

    Would this be just after you have putt food in the tank ..... If so then its normal as they have "trapped" the food for consumption .... BTW .... Welcome to MASA

    I actually did give zooplankton earlier today, but this is he first time I notice them inflating. Could there be any other reason for this - e.g.stress?
