Hi guys, Ive been looking for anyone who has this particular blue striped mushroom. It was really common a decade back but now I hardly see anyone with pics of it.

Anyone with this particular color please post a pic! Also appreciate if someone can id it.

Live Aquaria is selling them, and they are pretty. Their classification has been changed apparently to actinodiscus. http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/prod_display.cfm?c=597+598+1860&pcatid=1860

I just saw a ton at an LFS nearby, have you checked with your reef club?

I've seen variations like the picture in liveaquaria, but the blue is not that intense and more towards purple than blue.
Anyone has more pics to share?

imo the intensity and color of the blue is more about the light they're under and water cleanliness than much else. Mushrooms rarely arrive fully colored up, chances are you're looking at the same ones...

Beautiful shroom for sure. I had several of them about 12 years or so ago. Like you said they were easy to find then. I'm just now getting back into the hobby

I have one like that I got from a friend in a trade. I'm hoping it makes baby's because I'm in love with it!

I just saw a few rocks of these at an LFS, they're out there just gotta check with your LFS to see if they can get them in. Wholesalers sell them as blue mushroom but your LFS's wholesale rep should be able to find the exact ones with no worries.

I had them years ago and it reproduced like crazy.

I got one polyp two days ago since I missed them. Got it at LFS for $5. Pic in attachment. It will soon multiply I hope. looks good for day 2.
I have blue lights on at night for a couple of hours and it pops nice.
