    More than likely not bright enough I would think, they dont like too much flow either although they do become more accustomed to the flow

    oh :welcometomasa:

    Just had a look at the wesite, my apologies those lights should be fine,

    How long has the sytem been up, my shrooms took a long time to fully open, even while everything else was flourishing

    all depends on what shrooms, Dicosoma and Rhodactis can tolerate low light, but Recordias love strong light, even love Mh

    They don't really need to be fed, monitor them, if the light is insufficient then maybe think about feeding them.
