    yeah, but do not superglue mushrooms, that does not work...
    They slime themselves loose again.

    Some leathers as well.

    I secured a big pincushion last weekend with needle and thread...

    Have you tried using a piece of orange or onionbag? Or place one on a piece of rock in a glass?

    Guy in cape town did it successfully. You dont blend the mushrooms till they liquid, you blend them quickly to cut them into smallish pieces.
    But why would anyone actually want more mushrooms in their tank.

    Shrooms multiply so quicly why would any one want to cut them up....They can take over within a year or two.. getting rid of it is not easy espesialy if you have a mixed reef they can kill your SPS corals in no time..
    You need to try and control where they grow or it will get out of hand..
