Question on mushroom

I bought this one as a richordia..
Lately it has been getting rather large bubbles on it..
It had a few larger bubbles on it from the beginning, but now it seems they are taking over..
Is this normal for a richordia,, or is it a richordia??

All of the babies it has been dropping are doing the same thing..




Any ideas,, or am just concerned over nothing??

I haven't seen one like that before. I think that will look cool next to this. I got this from Divers Den.

I showed that picture of when you first got it and was told it is a St Thomas Mushroom.

I emailed TidalGardens and a few others to see what they say, shrooms are getting confusing......

I heard back from TidalGardens. He said it looked like a Ricordea Yuma..
I found a picture on bareefers.org that show another one doing the same thing..
Link to their thread http://www.bareefers.org/forum/threa...room-or.18321/

TidalGardens says maybe too much light, The thread in bareefers is talking about flow issues..
I am gonna move in into a shaded spot to see what happens..

Hmm, I always thought the bounce mushrooms were just upset yumas or something. Almost like they figured out a way to get the animal to bubble so they could sell it like that? Thoughts??

Bounce Mushrooms are of the Rhodactis species.

yep, true 'bounce' are from the genus rhodactis. A bounce by any other name is prolly someone just trying to market and increase value

The OP's shroom is most definitely r. yuma...and my god, it's pretty wacky at that. I've rarely ever seen yumas bubble, and OP's looks like it's bubbling up a storm...

Personally, I always thought the bubbling we see in bounce shrooms had something to do with an initial lack of light, thereby telling the animal it needed to try and maximize it's surface area somehow to try and collect as much PAR from its light source.

Once the bubbles are formed, they stay that way, no matter how much more light it receives later on.....

It's the same sort of response we see in bubble-tip anemones - i've read they bubble in response to a lack of light, where the bubbling of tips essentially doubles or triples the amount of light-collecting surface area in that part of the animal in those light-poor environments.

However, BTAs seem to lose their bubbles when introduced to more light.....whereas bounce shrooms seem to have them for life...

I hear there is way less marketing or naming of corals there in Canada.

emphasis on "waaaay" for the marketing part

we still like to name them though

It's a Ricordia yuma with "bounce" type bubbles, very nice. If it colors up well the "bounce" thing has been hyped so much that you might get a good bit for them.
