Question help with a mushroom.....

I purchased a single un attached myshroom last night and the guy told me to set in on a piece of live rock in the tank and it would attach.

on my first try i put in in a nice spot but the current was a bit to strong and he blew i moved him to a quieter spot with a nice nook in the rock, well this am when i looked in , he had smooshed himself into hiding in this hole....

so now what so i do?

so i retrieve him or wait to see if he comes out then glue him to a small frag?


- Thanks in advance for any suggestions...

take a little tupperware container, on the bottom put some LR rubble or sand. and put it on the bottom of your tank.

wait a few days, the shroom will have attached to the LR rubble/sand. then put glue on the sand/rubble it attached to, then glue that to a rock.

A toothpick through the middle of the mushroom and then stick in a rock works well. After a few days remove toothpick and should be stuck.
