I like that a lot!
Has anyone in the US been able to find a good fungus spore that holds color? I saw the glow in the dark ones on a website, but I would prefer daytime color.

Sweet, seen lots of mycelium in my tanks, but no fruit yet.

Also, crystal; the bioluminescent mushrooms that you saw on a site (if offered for sale) were likely not nearly as vibrant as the ones that these sites usually show in their pictures. There has been a number of bioluminescent species that have been recently discovered and I am in the process of trying to obtain spores from a research facility. But they are not offered for sale to the public anywhere I have yet found. The thing about vibrantly colored fungi is that it will commonly be like a vibrantly colored frog, poisonous. Amanita mushrooms are a good example of this.

I can understand that... About the bioluminescent spores...there was 1 website that does sell them to the public, but I am sure you are correct about them not being as brilliant as the pictures of as maybe the species you are attempting to find through the researchers.
Also, are the mushrooms that are poisonous to eat also poisonous to the frogs? I understand not eating them, but I probably would never eat a mushroom out of the vivarium that contains frogs anyways. I actually am looking for a smaller redish or yellow mushroom for a dart viv. Any recommendations on species??
Thanks!
Crystal
