I have recently ventured into SW setup with the help of my friend (setup at his place).

There is abundant mushrooms in the tank and I would like to trade /sell some($6.00 each), for trade I am looking for button polyps.

Not sure what they are called !!!!!!

Also not sure if I did the right thing to add these pic's. If not displayed feel free to text me and I will send the pictures. (604 837 1064 )

The first picture that has the green-like an umbrella- Can some one identify that for me. That's not for sale.

For some of the "bubbly" mushroom corals you have in the first pic, I'll trade you a big colony of bright green button polyps. Equally as easy to keep for beginners as your mushrooms.

I spoke to Eric, was with Brig House Pets in the 70's and he says it's not a mushroom and it is a colony anemone because of it's long stem/base.
He had imported similar ones in the past from Singapore.

Does any other member have similar anemone and if so what color?

If he says so.

YOU should Google image search Ricordea Yuma or Yuma mushrooms and check for yourself. Under low light conditions, mushrooms will stretch out to expose itself to more light.

Hey Bill. I think that I would go along with Anthony (Seahorse_Fanatic) and the others that tell you that these are Yuma mushrooms....These guys really know their stuff and are as close to "experts" as we have in this neck of the woods. If you want any confirmation/proof/evidence, ask Anthony if you can go and have a look at his reef tank....it'll blow you away:bigsmile:
