Mine are bigger though... Here's a pic under whites.
(For the record, I don't think an orange shroom would be called superman... That's usually blue and red)

They are similar... mine have the big marbled bounce bubbles, though. They are red and blue with bright neon orange fire rim. I’ve seen some almost like them called power ball bounces (the distinguishing characteristic of those being the marbled bubbles) and a fire and ice bounce. I thought it to be rhodactis at first, but all the babies “bounce” too

Soon as I can figure out how to get one off the rock lol Got some R2R peeps offering me some crazy amounts of $$$ for these suckers... and all I did was post a Help ID thread on there
Haha nice! You’re going to want to use a hammer and chisel and take the rock out in pieces. It’s the easiest way to remove some without harming the foot.

Break the rock dont try to remove it like an anenome.
I’ve tried scraping bounces off with a razor before and did a pretty clean job. I still had about a 70/30 survival rate.

Like he said, it’s best to just cut the rock underneath the mushroom and not mess around with the foot.

If you want me to come show you how to do it then let me know. I’m curious to see these suckers in person.

Is there another way? Like maybe place them in high flow to get them to “move” to something else? I’d prefer not to break the rock since it’s in my show tank, and there’s really only one way to “place” it bc it’s kinda funny shaped 🤷🏻‍♂️

All you’ll do is irritate it and ruin the bubbles. Chiseling the rock out from underneath them is the best method.
