It looks like I'm losing this ricordea. Is there anything I should test for or do, or is it just too far gone?

Full disclosure, I came back from vacation to the horror of discovering the person I had watching the tank had not refilled my ATO. I'm not sure how long it was affected, but the temperature had dropped from 78 to 71. I watched it over a the rest of the day and it slowly climbed back up to 78 again taking roughly 24 hrs to do so. I am did not lose any livestock, but the corals are starting to look bad. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170630/9ebe448aacd935dddee6cf956d7f3d5d.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170630/6219ad697770d4915f196815d93d4815.jpg

It can easily recover and its certainly not a goner so far.... shrooms can just get up and move if they want and be totally happy after.. and sometimes the little bit of themselves they leave becomes a new shroom..

Good to hear. Parameters don't seem to have change other than the rapid temp change. Thanks for the post.

Your mushroom appears to have 3 mouths,It is most likely splitting .

Looks like the ric is spitting.

Mushrooms also have the ability to up and leave where they are to locate a spot they prefer.
