I got a bunch of mushrooms over the last few weeks... I also got a vortech MP40. My mushrooms end up floating around the water until they disappear under or behind a rock. Any ideas to get them to attach to coral rubble?

Put them in a container, in time they will attached to the rubble. You could also do the same in your sump. They attach pretty fast too.

you can use netting, from fruit, to hold it down to a specific rock location, then rubber band the netting in place.
Or place them in a tall glass in the main tank, with rubble on the bottom of the glass.

This sounds ridiculous but I've used it with other softies and its worked..

Take a needle and thread and go through the base of the stem. Then tie the thread to a small piece of rubble rock. After a few days the coral with attach to the rock.

I second the container idea, i usually take a small plastic mesh pot used for pond plants put some rubble in it then clip it to the side of the tank for a week or so.
