Um... well no... but yes in a way. They are "speckled mushrooms" but that is not the real name. Have a closer picture?

Great first mushroom find! Colors look different under different lighting. And maybe its me, but in that last pic, they look blue and purple, not brown. Anyway, make sure you keep your salinity in line, mushrooms don't like high salinity at all.

Whats the correct salinity it should be at?

Your salinity should be at/around 1.024-1.025. If you don't have an auto top off system, then 1.024 would be a good level, that way, when evap happens, your salinity won't rise too bad. What are your other water parameters looking like??
