WHAT ARE THE LIGHTING REQUIREMENTS FOR LIVE MUSHROOM CORALS?
Most Mushrooms corals are generally forgiving and/or tolerant of different lighting conditions. You'll be able to place them almost anywhere except the most shaded or brightest positions in your tank. However, Mushroom coral is quite sensitive to sudden changes in light intensity, so it's important to first place them at the bottom of your tank or in a corner during the acclimation process and slowly move them up. We like to keep these mushroom corals in around 50 par. Light spectrums also give a large benefit too with our tanks heavily favoring blues. Here at Koralkingdom we give them mostly blue light with about 2 hours of white, green, and red. When it comes to the Mushrooms for sale here at Koral Kingdom, we suggest giving them moderate lighting by placing them in the middle to top range of your saltwater aquarium. After a slow and steady acclimation, you could also place them higher in the water column, as live coral Mushrooms are known to show off their eye-popping colors in quality lights. We keep these corals under a verity of lights which include Aqua illuminations, Orphek Leds, Radions, and even the in expensive black boxes. Be careful not to introduce them too quickly.
DO I NEED TO FEED MY MUSHROOMS CORAL?
Mushrooms corals have photosynthetic algae in their cells, providing them with a lot of extra energy from sunlight and lighting given by our LEDs. However, they do love to eat – feeding them will help increase their color, overall health and encourage them to breed and spread. We see lots of growth and splitting of our Mushrooms from feeding. Some things you can feed live coral Mushrooms include:
- Special Coral Reef Food (Reef Roids)
- Brine Shrimp, Krill, Plankton & Copepods
- Rotifers, Bloodworms & Lancefish
- Pellet foods work well for us too here at Koralkingdom
Since your food mixture will be generally thicker and heavier than your water, using a turkey baster or pipette to shoot it at your Mushrooms coral should do the trick. It will land gently on the polyp, which you'll then slowly fold inward towards the mouth. It's fascinating to see and will help keep your Mushrooms coral healthy and thriving. Remember – photosynthesis is only half of the story when feeding Mushrooms.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF MY MUSHROOMS CORAL'S POLYPS AREN'T OPENING?
Some of the more delicate Mushrooms Colonies for sale here at Koral Kingdom may take a couple of days to open fully after they arrive on your doorstep. If you just bought your Mushrooms, don't worry if they don't open right away. However, if they were previously open and have now closed, you should take a good look at your water parameters. The first thing you should check is your salinity and pH levels – Mushrooms corals can close if these are thrown out of balance. Don't try to handle them without gloves and never try to force open their polyps if they close. We always recommend Animo acids and Trace elements to be added to your tank in small quantities to help encourage corals to open and respond to the nutrients. Another reason for the closed Mushrooms is lack of flow or too high flow. We never want to place mushrooms in higher flow because the water movement could tear away at their flesh. A slow to moderate pulse of water to move and sway the tips of the corals skirt.
