Mushroom Mystery

Recommended Posts


Hello fellow Reef enthusiasts.  I am the proud owner of a 32 gallon Coralife Biocube which I've had for almost 3 years.  I need a little help in identifying the mushrooms in this picture.  I know that the big green ones and the reddish ones with the green eyes are palythoa mushrooms, but I don't know what kind exactly.  Can one of you experts please help me out?  Also, can anyone identify the flat, bumpy mushrooms?  Thank you in advance for your help.

The big green things up top are palythoas (not a mushroom) and the green things underneath are discosoma mushrooms. The polyp on the left of the photo with the red polyp/green mouth is a zoa (similar to paly, but different) and it looks like it might be of the 'red people eater' variety - give it a google 🙂
