Metallic Red Mushroom for Sale - The Red Mushroom (Discosoma sp.) or Metallic Red Mushroom is very hardy and one of the best corals for both beginners and experienced hobbyists, looking to add a beautiful showpiece to their aquarium.

This Red Mushroom variety has the brightest, metallic red base color observed in a mushroom. Discosoma mushroom corallimorphs are found all over Indo-Pacific Islands including Fiji, Tonga, Solomon Islands, and the Great Barrier Reef.

Discosoma mushrooms will also, benefit from stable water parameters and being placed in an established aquarium. Like most mushrooms they do well with lower light, but not shade.

We recommend keeping Metallic Red Mushrooms in a relatively low flow area of the reef aquarium. Too much water flow may cause Metallic Red Mushroom to become stressed and not extend fully. Worse yet, the mushroom may detach altogether from its substrate.
