View Full Version : Do mushrooms and Rics Fight?

I was wondering as I have both that are touching and if my rics are going to get harmed I want to move them. I am sure the mushrooms are fine as it just sprouted two babies after over a year in my tank the rics on the other hand have not multiplied at all. i really wish they would take off.

no one knows if mushrooms and rics should be separated or not?

They won't need to be separated. Mushrooms seem to be immune to each other, even if they are of different genera.

They will be fine touching eachother..

as far as the shrooms "taking off" and the rics not..

shrooms grow very quickly and ricordia grows slowlyyyy

I have now been made a fool. I previously said that I have not had any reproductions from either my mushrooms or rics (I didn't say either had taken off PITW I said I wish that they would). I am now the proud parent of 3 baby mushrooms and 2 baby yumas. I found them the other day. Both parents sent out a fleshy looking extension and produced a couple of babies at the same time. Now if I could just get the florida rics to do the same.

babys are good at hiding. after 6 months, my ricoridia rock showed me a baby just the other day. its already the diameter of a dime and i was really shocked i didnt see it earlyer.
