let me start by saying I am sorry for never getting on, laptop broke but I have an iPhone till I can get a new one so I will do what I can.
Now here is what's weird.
My mushrooms just started putting out tenticles. They look like feeding tenticles bit I have never herd of a mushroom doing this. They extended to about 5" before retracting. They have never done this before so I have no idea what's going on. Any ideas?

Wow did I ever misread. I now see that your Chalice is in your sig and not posted with the question - duh!

OK, what you saw were mesenterial filaments which are part of a rudimentary digestive system for Mushrooms. This is a defensive posture for stressed Mushrooms.

Agree with above,,, Them tentacles or guts as I call them can digest the mushroom or even near by corals so keep an eye on them.
