    Hi all, I got some not so beautiful mushrooms which are thriving in my system and I need to thin them out or eradicate altogether. I tried cutting them from the rocks but each little piece of flesh remaining grows bock as an individual mushroom. Trying to scrape them off the rock therefore does not work. Does anyone have some (aptaisia like) advise on zapping them?

    ...most ppl pay good money for mushrooms, but if u want to get rid of them try either a credit card (push it between the rock and the foot of the mushroom if the rock is smooth enough), or u can use a circulating pump to 'force' them off the rock, collect them after otherwise they'll just start a new colony.

    You can also....once you have cut them off....take about 1ml Hydrogen Peroxide...and slowly squirt it on the fleshy part that stays behind....will go all slimy and then you simply scrap off with a spoon or something (I find the McDonalds coffee spoon works great....) But, as in the above reply....if you can get under the foot and lift them off comepletely....that would be first prize!

    if you shake them hard enough, ie the rock, they will let go.
