Overview

The Green Mushroom Corals are also referred to as Mushroom Anemones and Disc Anemones. This variety of mushroom coral is various shades of green. They are a wonderful invertebrate for bottom placement in a reef aquarium. Over time, they will reproduce, forming a carpet covering the rockwork and sand.

They are hardy and easy to maintain. In general, they need a medium light level, and should be placed lower in the tank if the light intensity is high. These mushrooms require a low to moderate indirect water flow. Too much water movement will inhibit these mushrooms to fully expand. They are semi-aggressive and require adequate space between themselves and other corals and sessile invertebrates.

The Green Mushroom receives most of its nutritional requirements through symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within its body which provide the majority of its nutritional requirements through photosynthesis. It also feeds on other nutrients and particulate matter and benefits from additional food in the form of micro-plankton or brine shrimp fed to each polyp of the colony.

It ships as several individual mushrooms attached to one rock.
