Blue Spotted Red Mushrooms are a classic beginner coral and are easy to keep. These beauties will stand out in any reef aquarium.
Mount the Blue Spotted Red Mushrooms using IC gel glue, or putty, in the bottom half of the aquarium where they can reproduce and expand their colonies over the rock. If you do not want them growing on your main rock structure try creating a mushroom island by mounting several types of mushrooms to one larger rock and placing it as an island in your sand bed.
Although symbiotic algae called zooxanthellae hosted within them supply some of their nutritional requirements through photosynthesis they do benefit from supplemental feedings of phytoplankton, zooplankton, and/or marine snow.
Lighting and Flow Requirements:
Blue Spotted Red Mushrooms require low to moderate water flow and low to moderate lighting (PAR 80-250). T5’s, Metal Halides, or LED’s can all grow Bluespotted Red Mushrooms when the proper PAR levels are provided. We recommend a 14-20K colour spectrum for best colouration.
