    :biggrin:hello guys,
    Just want to share with you my mushrooms, they have been multiplying. I had 3 mushrooms, one big(about 7-8cm's), one a bit smaller about half the big one's size and one super small one, its as tiny as about 7mm. First my big one multiplied and now my smaller one is busy multiplying, they simply split in half. Now I have 4 mushrooms soon to be 5.:thumbup: and they ate this morning.

    mushrooms are awesome. also very popular because they are so easy to look after... perhaps too easy even that they can take over your tank. a friend of mine has probably about 15 different species and some have some stunning colors

    thats fine as long as you like them. and you dont want to have too many unless you want to have a mushroom only tank. those guys know how to make babies :D

    hehe if he only knew you few moths ago ... he had to give away more than 15 different frags some very very large too just because he had too many. ordered some zoas but when they arrived we found only mushrooms inside. he kept the best and the rest he gave away.. gosh they were so many

    im sure he wont have a problem as long as you can come fetch them in Swaziland... makes for a nice road trip :)

    because he ordered a whole consignment of zoas but when it arrived we found only mushrooms on the box. yoh they were so many and some were so big. he simply wouldn't have enough space in the tank. and the other problem is that mushrooms can spread so fast that in few months he would have a mushroom only tank... so more than half had to go
    i'll try and take some pictures tonight and show you some of the ones that remained. very beautiful. i also got few for my tank but only like 5 or 6 small ones

    @Krappie

    You have a very odd shaped substrate, like small balls... What brand is it?
