It was already loose. It was in my 75 on the back glass and I scraped it off and just tossed it in my 20 gal. On a side note I've been trying to get all the mushrooms out of my 75 and I'm not having much luck at all. There was a patch of those green ones that I epoxied over and now they are all sticking out the side of the epoxy. There was also about 3 big blue ones that I scraped out with a razor blade and now there are about 6 new ones there. Sad I think I'm going to look into building a zapper.

I tried it, didn't work for me. I did get one to detach from the rock but that's about it.

Strange! They dissolve quickly for me. Are you shutting down all your pumps during treatment? I leave the pumps off for about 30 minutes to give the X time to work.

Yes. I've been doing it on Sunday mornings when I turn all the pumps off and do my tank cleaning. It does make them disappear into the rocks but they are back within a day or two. I hit my aiptasia at the same time and it works well on those but the shrooms just get mad.

I did that too. Now I have a patch of epoxy with green mushrooms sticking out the side.
