What happened... did the shrooms mate?


Just curious.


I have no idea if it's possible, but it sure looks like it! (laugh)


In my 20G I have blue and red schrooms next to each other. Now I'll have to watch out for morphs, but so far it's mostly red mushrooms taking over. I started with one and now have about 15. The blues are much slower to multiply.

If you end up watching Lowman's Reef video, they talk about how when the seas are calm, the corals send out eggs and sperm all at once and do/can create new life forms by cross fertilization.

As a funny side note, the other day I thought my pink Caribbean star polyps sent eggs all over because I left a PH blasting on it for awhile....came in a few hours later, and little "eggs" were floating around and hundreds were all over the sand and perched on the rocks. I thought, awesome, looked just like the eggs in the video. (I moved this coral a week prior and it sent either sperm or poison around so I've seen smoke like stuff coming out of it before). Well, then I realized what an idiot I can be....it was a sealed bag of Purigen that I forgot I had rubber banded in my canister filter...the rubberband was because it had a hole in it when I bought it and it must have opened up.....(nutty)
