Fluorescent Neon Green Hairy Mushroom
Hairy mushroom corals are a great easy to keep soft coral that offer a satisfying glow under the correct light as well as a nice gentle movement in flow.
The Rhodactis Hairy Mushroom is a member of the order Corallimorpharia and occurs in many colours. The surface of these mushrooms are covered with many hair-like tentacles, giving it a hairy appearance.
Growing Green Hairy Mushrooms
Good lighting is enough for hairy mushrooms to grow well. They will also feed on plankton and other coral feeds that can result in larger mushrooms and faster growth. Mushroom corals can be quite prolifant so bare this in mind when placing them in your aquarium leaving plenty of space between other corals.
They reproduces by fission or laceration, and will do so in the home aquarium provided that water conditions are adequate. 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.
They are shipped attached to rock but can sometimes detach during transport. If this occurs find a low flow area in the tank and place small rocks around the mushroom. It will soon re attach.
Would you love a marine tank but don’t have the time doc confidence to set one up yourself? Why not hire a professional to set up your aquarium.
