    its possible, soft corals inflate using water, so they can go from 10c piece to R5 coin size over night

    Thats true. I have a rock of red mushrooms and they can go from fifty cent size to about five centimetres.
    Huge changes.

    erm if you keep them happy they can also multiply like crazy if the right conditions are there.
    I got a mate and his 1st tank was soft coral dominated with t8 lights within a year that whole tank was covered in mushrooms
