View Full Version : mushroom received partially bleached

I received my mushroom order A2671228 today and notice that one of the colony is partially bleached. The bleached part is next to the right clam (see pic). Is there something I can do to help the mushroom recover from this?

Thank you for your inquiry and recent order with LiveAquaria. We apologize for any inconvenience with your order. Unfortunately, shipping can be very stressful on corals and this may cause them to lose color temporarily. Once given time to adjust to its new surroundings, their color normally returns. At this time we recommend close monitoring of the mushrooms. If this color does not return within a week please contact us back and we would be happy to assist your further.

oh that'll heal up in no time. It's pretty insignificant. Just keep a clean healthy tank and they will all be happy and grow like crazy!
