View Full Version : Im at a loss for my mushrooms

06/04/2006, 11:02 PM
I bought this last month from a guy.
He says they are from Vietnam. Had great color then but are dying now.
All my #'s are good. I have 2 250W 14K MH and 4 65W actinic 03's over a 110G tank (about 2.5' away from the bottom). These are at the bottom far corner of the tank thinking its a light issue.
What can I try to save these?

Is this a sign of too much light?

PS this pic is with my lights off :D

I picked up a piece of live rock from a local university late last year that had some bleached out corals that looked quite similar. Under PC lighting some color returned, however not much; though a number of new polyps developed.

I picked up a rock of flouresent green shrooms that were from vietnam. They were under MH and basically bleached, some were already white. Put them under PC lighting and they colored up almost over night. They are darker but very attractive. Wherever they are from, these are very sensitive to light and flow, more so than any of my other shrooms and rics. I would place them as low as possible and even shade them with some rockwork. Eventually they will adjust to the lighting but the picture looks like tey just can't handle the light.

agree with diatome, put them in some partial shade with very low flow, yumas require less light than floridas.
