Live Corals: Mushroom

 
   

Description: Mushroom corals, also called Corallimorphs or mushroom anemones, are very hardy corals, and one of the best for the beginner reef aquarium. Among one of the best beginner corals, they can even be maintained in aquariums with just sand substrate, live rock, and an airstone for water movement and oxygenation. This is because they will tolerate high levels of nitrate and other organic compounds. They will do even better, and their colors will brighten further, in an aquarium with low levels of organic compounds. Most mushroom coral prefer indirect light or shade so the VHO fluorescent or metal halide lighting is not required. Mushroom corals come in many different colors like blue, red, green, brown, purple and often have stripes, spots, and mottled color variations. A very easy coral to keep, the mushroom coral prefers indirect light from fluorescents and low water current. They will often propagate until they completely cover the substrate upon which they grow.

Tech Notes on Mushroom Corals: The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within the mushroom coral provides the majority of its nutritional requirements from the light driven process of photosynthesis. Mushroom corals will also benefit from regular feedings of zooplankton and small meaty items. Place the mushroom coral low in the aquarium until it opens fully, and then gradually over a few weeks, move the coral to the desired location. To open large, mushroom corals prefer low water movement within the aquarium.

 Metallic Green Hairy Mushroom Rock
Rhodactis indosinensis

Description It is very easy to maintain in the reef aquarium, and a good choice for the beginner hobbyist. It is somewhat aggressive, however, and can harm sessile invertebrates and overgrow other inhabitants of the reef. It often grows in shallow water, so it prefers a medium to high light level combined with a medium water movement within the aquarium. It reproduces by fission or laceration, and will do so in the home aquarium provided that water conditions are adequate, sometimes causing over-population. A small portion of the base or mouth will separate from the parent polyp and grow into a full sized mushroom within a few months.

Lighting: Mushroom coral prefer either indirect light, or lower levels of light such as flourescent lighting, this is 1 time high power lighting is not prefered.

They were previously in a genus called Discosoma. These corals display a wide variety of colors, textures, and patterns. Some are solid colors, whereas, others are striped or spotted. The spotted ones are usually blue or green with spots. The taxonomy of the various species is in a state of flux, and will probably continue to change.

Lighting: Mushroom coral prefer either indirect light, or lower levels of light such as flourescent lighting, this is 1 time high power lighting is not prefered.

Water Current:To fully open mushroom corals prefer low water movement within the aquarium. 

Feeding and diet:All mushroom corals are photosynthetic and the majority of their nutritional requirements are obtained from the symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within each coral. They also may be fed plankton and smaller invertebrates, such as brine or mysis shrimp.

Coral Placement: Place the mushroom corals low in the aquarium on the substrate, within a week or two if conditions are correct they will open fully.

Difficulty Level: Easy

Purchase Info: Mushrooms come attached to rock

Note: When mushroom corals are shipped, it is perfectly normal for them to arrive totally deflated and very small. Once adjusted to your aquarium conditions, however, they will open. The acclimation process normally takes several days to 2 weeks.

 Purple Frilly Mushroom Rock
Rhodactis indosinensis

Frilly Purple with Green centers!!!
Description Purple very "hairy" tentacles with glowing green centers! The Rhodactis Hairy Mushroom is a member of the order Corallimorpharia and occurs in many colors including brown and tan, and the more colorful green and purple. Like the name suggests, the surface of these mushrooms are covered with many hair-like tentacles, giving it a hairy appearance. It is very easy to maintain in the reef aquarium, and a good choice for the beginner hobbyist. It is somewhat aggressive, however, and can harm sessile invertebrates and overgrow other inhabitants of the reef. It often grows in shallow water, so it prefers a medium to high light level combined with a medium water movement within the aquarium. It reproduces by fission or laceration, and will do so in the home aquarium provided that water conditions are adequate, sometimes causing over-population. A small portion of the base or mouth will separate from the parent polyp and grow into a full sized mushroom within a few months.

Lighting: Mushroom coral prefer either indirect light, or lower levels of light such as flourescent lighting, this is 1 time high power lighting is not prefered.

Water Current:To fully open mushroom corals prefer low water movement within the aquarium.

 WE WANT YOUR CORALS TO GROW - NOT JUST STAY ALIVE
Why Phytoplankton:
Phytoplankton is very important to marine life. It is the primary producers in the ocean. Crucial to the development and survival of most, if not all marine animals . But what is phytoplankton? It is just a fancy word for tiny floating plants (such as diatoms and dinoflagellates), which serve the same role in the food chains of the oceans as grass and shrubs serve on land; namely small things eat them. Many coral reef animals feed directly on phytoplankton. Some essential nutrients provided by phytoplankton cannot be synthesized by animals, and therefore are extremely important components of a healthy diet.
