A key point, if you are just starting out with tropical aquariums, is to keep things simple. You want fish that are easy to maintain. You also want plant life that is easy to maintain. One way to do that is to use larger plants or marine life that have a variety of designs and colors under different lighting. An option for many people is to go with an aquarium superman Rhodactis mushroom. If you have never considered this particular mushroom, here are a few benefits to keep in mind.
The key benefit to superman Rhodactis mushrooms is with the maintenance. These mushrooms do well with lower light levels, which makes them ideal if you want few lights and a shadow-looking aquarium, such as a pirate theme. The mushrooms also do well with low water movement. This means having a traditional water filter is ideal while upgrades that keep the water flowing and bubbling may be too much. LED lights are also recommended for mushrooms as they can help most of them grow and offer lighting options ranging from color to brightness.
When you go with a lower light for your aquarium, you may want to consider blacklights and how they enhance the appearance of the full aquarium. The superman Rhodactis mushroom has interesting effects and appearances when put under blacklight. For example, they present as a mixture of orange and red color patterns. When placed under a blacklight they offer the colors of blue with orange highlights. Some people say this appearance makes the mushroom look as if it is moving even when it isn't.
Feeding and Growth
If you choose a mushroom, especially a superman Rhodactis, you will want to offer it a micro-plankton food. This is a supplement you can find in flake and liquid form. You can introduce it directly to the mushroom. There are other supplements you can introduce to the mushroom. The main nutrient, however, is the algae created from the lights and the process of photosynthesis. The mushrooms feed off of this and thrive when micro-plankton is introduced.
