    Hi There,

    I may be wrong but I think it is just sulking, possibly due to changes in parameters caused by the water change. Leave it be and I think it will come right again. My 2c

    I doubt its dying mushrooms are hardy and they rejuvenate themselves. If a piece breaks off it will just grow into another mushroom.
