As a result these mushrooms come to us with rock fragments under them. It is enough rock surface that we can Super Glue them to frag chips. But they sometimes move off the rock fragments they are attached to over time. So it is best to place these mushrooms on the rock in your tank in a low flow area but where they can get moderate light. The lower flow will help it move onto your rocks without blowing away.
