I just did a water change. When I was pouring the water back in, I poured it closed to the ricordea. It closed up which I wasn't too surprised about but 2 of the 3 mushrooms also show some white things coming out of them now. I removed the coral from the tank out of fear that it might poison the tank. Anybody know what it is? I don't really know how else to explain it.

If it stringly looking white things it is just slime from the new water irritating them, if it isn't I have no idea w/o a pic.

It cleared up. I put it back into the tank. It was stringy by the way. I've never known it to do that. Thanks sirreal.

Yeah I seem to be good at ticking people/things off. Anyways, I decided to make that entire side of the tank where the ricordea is just for ricordea and other mushrooms. Just yesterday I got an awesome looking super green ricordea. It hasn't opened up as much as the other ricordea is open just yet but it's well on its way.
