    kinda hard to do with the rock they are currently on, since it is the base of most of my aquascaping! Ill try and move them though, both lower down and to a vertical surface! Right now they are about midlevel and on a horizontal surface

    Also, how do you tell the difference between a rhodactis and a ricordea? Just so I know for future reference! Also, I moved em! The one is kind of down a hole, but on a vertical surface in low light and the other is propped up against a rock low down! Hopefully that helps with them! The one down the hole is impossible to get too, but I think that it will be happy there! It will spread out of it hopefully.

    Rhodactis.Notice the "bumps" are smaller and spaced farther apart.

    awesome! Thanks for the info. Is it ok that one of them is kinda in a hole, but still has some light hitting it? Its not completely hidden.

    ^ yeah do not tell Vinny though.;D

    Melting, secondary to need to acclimate to lighting or be in less direct lighting.

    I have melted a lot of mushrooms.

    Thanks! hopefully since I moved them they will bounce back, the one was doing fine though still so hopefully it got moved in time! I didnt think my pc's would melt them! should I move my superman shrooms too? They are in a similar spot

    If they are open and staying open than no.

    Mushrooms will sometimes just completely detach when trying to find a better spot.

    Ok! I will keep an eye on them, they seem happy where they are for the time being!
