This Aqua St. Thomas mushroom is a rare collector mushroom coral. It is attached to a frag plug for easy placement in your tank.

St. Thomas mushroom corals are collected in Florida where it is illegal to harvest live rock from the ocean. So all corals must be chiseled off the rock. 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.

This Caribbean species is also known as a bubble mushroom or warty mushroom. It tolerates a wide variety of lighting conditions and is a great coral for a wide variety of tanks and exerpeince levels.

It will reproduce itself if it is happy with your aquarium conditions. It reproduces asexually to form spreading colonies in nature.
