Is my shroom ok? (PICS)


New member
I got this mushroom rock about 9 days ago. About two days ago, the side of one of the mushrooms curled up and today I noticed the exposed white underside. Is it ok or sick? What is it doing?

I just took these pics, and my lights have been running all day. Everything else in my tank looks normal as always.

Sometimes they'll close up like that in response to a lot of flow or something bothering them. It's probably just adjusting. Perhaps the hermit crab walked over it and made it retract a little bit.

I would check all parameters,like PH and Ca,alk. Once they are up to par,then they will open up like flowers. Shrooms love dim lighting anyways.
