    Hi all,

    One of my rocks is covered with mushrooms, and they have taken over almost all of the other stuff on there. The rock is stuck down, so I can't easily remove it...

    Is there any way to remove / kill the mushies? I've tried scraping them off with a teaspoon (don't tell the wife! ;)) but it makes virtually no difference and they come back very quickly. Was wondering whether something like aiptasia-x would work?

    Cheers,
    Ade

    :) Quite a lot of stuff in there. LPS, SPS, a large leather, urchin, couple of shrimp, clam, cucumber and about a dozen fish.

    It's in a 4 foot tank, if that's at all useful to know.
