    my green mushroom seems to have developed a white patch in the center around the oral disk. he also has shrank considerably. nothing else in the tank seems to be in any distress including his little buddy that came on the same frag. I am trying to get a good pic but wanted to see if this sounds familiar to anyone.

    Mesenterial filaments, basically coral guts. It either has something wrong, been stung, or is hungry.

    A mushroom problem? I agree with VA.

    In fact, if you can make it over to my place, I'll pay you a small fee it you can eradicate most, of not all of my green stirped discoma mushrooms! I'll throw in some sps frags too!
