Default Mushrooms in tank

I just wanted you to show some mushrooms that I found growing in my tank. They are very tiny, less than 10 mm tall.
I hope this means that everything is doing well in there. I don’t have frogs in there yet, but soon.

Not a bad sign at all. I actually look forward to the outbreaks in my tanks :-)

That's a beauty :-) Still nothing to worry about, IMO.

Cool!
It's actually not known how to grow most types of mushrooms. We've figured out a few, but a lot of them have mycologists (fungus scientists) stumped. Evidently you're accidentally doing something right.
Mushrooms are totally harmless. They just mean a fungus under there somewhere is happy and sending up fruiting bodies. As long as you don't stir up the substrate and kill the fungus living underneath, you'll probably have 'shrooms in the future.

Finding these weird, unplanned incidental growths is one of my favorite parts of keeping a viv. Wait until your first slime mold!

I have a mushroom growing out from underneath an elevated branch and one of my fine-spot leucs has decided its a great place to sit! If I can catch it in there again I'll snap a picture.
