Care Level for Mushroom Corals
Ease of Care: Easy. Mushroom Corals, belonging to the family Discosomatidae which includes genera like Rhodactis and Actinodiscus, are highly adaptable and easy to care for, making them excellent choices for beginner reef hobbyists.
Lighting: Low to Moderate. They are tolerant of a range of lighting conditions but typically thrive in lower to moderate light levels.
Water Flow: Low to Moderate. Gentle water flow is best for Mushroom Corals, as it enables them to fully expand and engage in optimal photosynthesis and feeding.
Water Parameters: Stable reef conditions are ideal, with temperatures between 72°F to 78°F, pH of 8.1-8.4, and specific gravity of 1.023-1.025.
Dietary Needs: Predominantly photosynthetic, Mushroom Corals contain symbiotic algae (zooxanthellae) that provide most of their nutritional needs. However, they can also capture small particles and benefit from additional feeding.
Recommended Foods: Although direct feeding is not essential, they can benefit from occasional feedings of fine particulate foods, such as zooplankton or phytoplankton.
Feeding Frequency: If you choose to feed your mushrooms, doing so once a week should be sufficient.
What Our Clients Say About Us
Really fun buying during the Tiki Torch Sale! (That may be the wrong name 🤷). Regardless, the sale was a ton of fun and I got some really amazing pieces for a crazy good price. They had crazy $5 specials, just had to be fast enough. You could win three of them, and you have to buy three at discounted prices. Really awesome selection, got way more than three at the prices they had. Really great shipping, worked around my schedule. Due to weather delays, several orders came in today so I received about 35 pieces total. The packaging was really well done and getting these guys settled into the tank was a breeze. All of them are mostly out in just a couple of hours. So awesome! Not a single complaint for these guys! Will be back for the next sale.
100% recommended, I had doubts about buy corals on line, but I trusted in Riptide Aquaculture and I’m satisfied with my choice, excellent service, All corals arrived in good conditions, good colors, and good shape.
They are the best!! Best prices and corals are always beautiful and healthy upon arrival. They have great specials and cool promotions. I actually won a raffle contest through their reeftober fest. They sent me an unbelievable selection of frags including my new favorites. I’m from Dallas with numerous local fish stores and I won’t shop at any of them anymore.
