I have these mushrooms but if you touch them they turn rock hard I've never seen it happen before any help would be much appreciated

I don't believe they are mushrooms. They appear to me to be some sort of LPS coral.

Looks like a florida ricordea, in the color i'm trying to get my hands on too :P Btw, that favia in the reflection, how fast does it grow for you? I have a similar favia and i've had it for like 3 or so months now and no new heads.

Is it all one piece, or are there individual heads? I don't think it's a Caulestrea, but maybe a Lobophyllia or Acan?

That's a Ricordia yuma. For future reference you want to post your own thread instead of piggybacking on someone else's, you'll get more replies.
