Hi, I'm about 1 week into the cycling process of my new tank. The LR that I bought seem to have a mushroom coral or something on it. I noticed some white growth on the rock which resembled "egg whites half cooked". The area of the "mushroom" smells very strong low tide. Should I keep this in the tank right now, is this normal and ok. Thanks for any help and sorry of lack of better words. I will post a picture.

Photo's must be hosted on an outside site (Photobucket/Imagesource etc) and then linked with IMG /IMG tags.

If you look at the top of the first page, there's a "New-First Time on RC-Look Here for Answers" thread, within that thread are specific step by step directions if you can't figure it out.

I had the same problem Tuesday. You'll have to go set up a Photobucket account. After you load your photo's up to Photobucket, resize them, then copy the direct link code. Then when you make a new thread or post reply, you will see an IMG button, click the IMG button and paste the direct link in the box that pops up at the top of the screen.

Your welcome, us newbies have to stick together. It took me two weeks before somebody finally gave me the idiots guide to posting picks on Reef Central. LOL. Step by step with pictures. I can't find the link that had the pictures.

The white on the rock looks like coralline algae die off. My understanding is that, this is normal at this stage. As far as the shroom, not sure?

I would definetly keep the possible mushroom--its either going to grow or die. If it dies it will help contribute to the cycling process in your tank.
