View Full Version : Can Actinodiscus mushrooms eat fish?

Hello everyone,

My tank is currently a fish only, but I would like to try growing mushrooms in it. However, I have a couple of smaller perching fish (Neon Goby and Lawnmower Blenny), and a Clownfish. I've read that certain types of mushrooms like Elephant Ears, and even Ricordeas and Rhodactis can eat fish, so I've ruled those out as potential tank inhabitants. Don't want anything bad to happen to the fish. But I'd like to know if Actinodiscus mushrooms can eat fish as well, or are they completely safe?

Thanks in advance for any and all information. :)

My friend had one eat one of his really dumb inbred designer clownfish that fell asleep in it, but I imagine it's extremely rare since I haven't heard of it happening to anyone else. Honestly I wouldn't stress it.

Lol... alright, thanks. Was hoping Actinodiscus sp. would be different than the other types that are known fish eaters, but guess it makes sense that they aren't. I know it's a rare occurrence, but I'd be really upset if they were eaten. I'll look into other beginner corals then.
