Turquoise mushrooms

Recommended Posts

My tank is being taken over by turquoise mushrooms. They are absolutely gorgeous in the actinic light. The center is a bright turquoise/green/blue and the rim has purple. I'm needing a little help identifying them. Im also hoping to sell or trade some. I'm not sure what they would cost in the shop, but I was hoping to get $12 for the large ones and $5 for the small. Some are loose, some are attached to small rocks. Would consider trade for fish or maybe a small frag. I'm trying to make room in the aquarium though, so no large pieces.

My phone camera is all i have and it really does these mushrooms no justice. They are gorgeous, and not ones I generally see around. The large ones are 2-3" across. $12 is apparently more than they are worth. How about $8 for the large $4 for the small ones?

The single mushroom pic was color corrected a bit to get it closer to real life. The group pic can help determine color versus the other corals in my tank.

By the way, I'm in Salem. I'm open to offers or trades. I'll probably just bring all them into the local fish shop soon if there is no interest. My tank is needing extra room real soon.

Maybe I worded that poorly. They aren't aggressively growing over anything, just very healthy growing. I got a large rock with them about a year ago. My tank is small, 28 gallon. Fills up quick.

Not sure what all is in there. Tank got crowded this summer. I was injured and unable to maintain the coral reef scaping properly. I don't have many small pieces of live rock. Most of the mushrooms are alone on the sand bottom. The handful I'm wanting to move away anyhow. I'll see what is attached to rocks later.

      Hi, I have a large rock covered in blue/teal mushrooms for sale or trade. $20 obo. Trade for wavemakers, heater, other corals, fish, or anything else cool.

      My tank is small, and corals are growing well. I've run out of room in my tank. The corals I want to get rid of aren't high end. They would be great for a starter tank or someone on a budget. There are probably 10 pinwheel mushrooms, most are loose, a few are attached to small rocks or frag plugs. I have a couple smaller frags of blue cactus coral. I also have an endless supply of large seafoam palys. For an established reef, these are a nuisance. For an entry level reef or fish only with live rock, these would be fun. They are pretty, but ultra aggressive growing. I literally pull them off of my favites coral with tweezers. Anyhow, a few bucks or trade would be appreciated, but I will also give for free for someone trying to start an entry level reef on a budget. $2 for large mushrooms, $1 for smaller. Everything else is free to a good home.
