View Full Version : Toadstool mushroom looking weird

Is being like this for 4 days, any ideas? Everything is working parameters, and before this it was doing perfectly

I find they close up when alk drops. Check and be sure it hasn't changed over the past week. Other than that, sometimes they like more flow.

How long was it doing fine for in that spot?

Alk is spot on mate, it was doing great in there for a few months, I know about the flow it doesn't get to much there but it is attached and I can't f*** with the flow around lol, any other ideas? Lol

Are those clownfish hosting the toadstool? My pair of clownfish decided to make my toadstool their home. The toadstool closed up for a few days initially, but opened up eventually. Since then (for the last couple years), the pair of clownfish has lived in the toadstool with no problems.

Am not sure if they been hosting it or not, they always stay in that corner, but heck who knows maybe they are hosting it lol, good point, I think I was just have to wait then

Yeah if its been a couple months in the same spot then its prob not light or flow. Sometimes leathers just have a mind of their own.

I'd just wait it out too, maybe it is the clowns.

Let's hope [emoji102]

Yep toadstools will drive you nuts if you worry too much. I think they can be bipolar, lots of ups and downs ::hmm5: then they like to just shake it off and shed and come back better than ever

Thanks mate, I guess I will just waited out, actually I did see one of my clowns kinda hosting it, robbing against it and stuff

Ours would do the same for days on end at times for no apparent reason.

Sounds like they are weird as hell lol

Heavy flow !

No I truly believe it is not enough flow, nothing I can do about, because if I move the flow my anemone will move from where I finally got her to stay lol, hopefully this toadstool will get in line and start liking this flow

I have a similar problem with mine. After changing it from led to halide lights it rarely opens up. Should I put it in the shade?

05/20/2015, 08:47 PM
They may close up for days at a time to shed. means they are growing :) If it has been happy there before and your params are good I would just watch it

05/21/2015, 01:37 AM
yeah mine has closed up for almost 4 weeks now they are silly buggers and dont like attention , i would say your clowns prolly annoyed it a little so it will come back soon im sure tank looks good :)

Those clowns are like what are you looking at mate ! lol

05/21/2015, 08:20 AM
Yea lol thanks, I will be watching it and see how it does
