Shrooms are so under-rated!  They look great in your tank and I really should get more for my tank.

Thanks, and yeah - you should get some! They're very easy to care for too. 🥰

Spotted my spaghetti worm out in the open - it's still alive and very active: 😮

This next post is a bit sad, but I expected it because when I first picked this frag up from the LFS, it was quite unhealthy. Partial polyp bailout of the pearl bubble coral: 😓

Unfortunately, the hammer is at its end with another round of BJD. It looks awful: 😭

Yeah, it sucked to lose such a huge colony like that. 😓

 

Thanks though! I like taking pics of the shrooms. 😊

I think stress. I removed it from the sandbed and a LOT of bristleworms spilled put from the base of the coral. 😓

 

I placed it on the rocks, but the polyps are still dangling from the skeleton. 😭

Dropped a bunch of pellets on the yuma by mistake - was actually aiming for the ledge next to it: 😅

 

IMG_20210121_171942_400.thumb.jpg.af43987658444a3459ef928fbd9bd1d6.jpg

 

Finally retrieved the blue discosoma shroom from the sandbed and reglued it to Mushroom Mountain:

He is very cool though. I think the sump is a good place for him.

It is. He's quite beneficial, actually. He indirectly seeds the fuge and sump with different types of macro, and I believe he feeds on the sponges/tunicates in the fuge. I've tried feeding him prepared before, and he kept rejecting it. So I left him on his own, and he seems to be faring well without my intervention. I like watching him because he travels all over the sump - sometimes I catch him on my filter floss or even bag of coral stones - but most of the time, he lives and retreats to the fuge. 🙂

Current status of my pearl bubble coral - still dangling and it doesn't look too good: 😕

 

IMG_20210124_112044_754.thumb.jpg.7723cd9392dbbd9bfbb6207d2cbc2451.jpg

 

The polyps haven't bailed out fully, so I'm not sure what elseI can do except to leave it alone. 

 

Here's Goblin:

Still so many empty spots. Will definitely try to fill those up with more shrooms. 👍
