    Hey guys

    I have a fox coral and it has started receiding and not puffing up like it should but there is a blue mushroom that has attached itself to the fox coral but is touching the tissue of the fox, could this be why the fox is not coming out like it should, if so how do i remove this mushroom form the fox?

    best way to remove the mushroom is to have it directly under a pump/powerhead to blow it off, have patience but eventually it'll let lose, make to aim at the base of the foot if you can.

    Yeah shroom will def irritate it...U maby have a pic...U can also try the 'tickle' way...Use a thin blade and slowly tickle it at the base under the foot....slowly it will start releasing then just work ur way to the middle...Blue shrooms are anyway tuff and even if u hurt it abit it will recover if the damage is not to hectic...Good luck...
