The Hairy Mushroom, Discosoma sp., also known as the Furry Mushroom, is a species of Discosoma that is covered with an abundance of hair-like tentacles across its usually brown/tan body. The Hairy Mushroom is particularly a good choice because it does not require specific tank alterations to thrive: it needs moderate waterflow, moderate lighting, and can be placed in the bottom or middle of a tank. Further, the Hairy Mushroom can be a proficient colonizer as it tends to frag very quickly. This can make for good fun watching your Hairy Mushroom expand across your tank, or it can be a colonization that you might want to control. Due to this, you should not house the Hairy Mushroom directly next to another sessile organism. It feeds photosynthetically through the zooxanthellae living within it but will also benefit from supplementary feeding of meaty foods. The Hairy Mushroom is a great addition to most reef tanks, especially for beginners as it is relatively easy to keep in the home aquarium.

Thought I only had one coral. Finds out there are two of them side by side. They’ve grown a ton in just a week. They acclimated quite easily so I’m thankful for that. They are a must have for any reef tank.

I’ve only seen these and had great reviews on how fast they grow and how beautiful they looked when the lights are on them. Can’t wait to see what it will look like fully grown.

The purple with the green buds are perfect for any reef tank. This one glows bright and stands out if you place them near darker colors.
