    Notes
    • Tyedye/Jawbreaker Discosoma Mushroom
    • Purchased: Diablo Corals March 2015
    • Feeding
      • Rarely eats food but sometimes will eat mysis/pellets if dropped directly on mouth and flow turned off.
    • Propagation
      • No one has been able to cut a jawbreaker and have it live.
      • Most of the time you get baby jawbreakers by "autopedal laceration" they leave pieces of their foot behind and it becomes a baby jawbreaker.

    July 12, 2016 One more baby jawbreaker is forming while the mother is moving towards the right. I notice she was moving this way and there was going to be a drop off beneath her foot so I put a rock there so she can attach. A drifting jawbreaker is a dead jawbreaker.

    My thoughts? If you notice your jawbreaker wanting to move, put it on a slope to encourage moving. This increases the chance of them leaving babies behind.

    I can't tell the scale of those pics. How big is your coral?

    The jawbreaker momma is about 3.5 inches diameter when happy

    It was super small at the beginning probably the size of a big nickel.

    A big nickel? I thought all nickels were the same size. :)

    Beautiful specimen! I like the greens spots that are coming out in the most recent pictures. I have been eyeing one of these mushrooms from Neptunes... One day:rolleyes:
