so i was feeding my white's tree frog the other day when i saw a mushroom and when i took it out little worm things went into the soil... and i use expandable soil so i let it go that time but then the next day 5 mushrooms sprouted and little worm things were everywhere in the soil. So i replaced the soil and boiled everything in the tank and the inside of the tank itself so they wouldn't be in the tank anymore but any advise on how to avoid that next time or what they were even...kinda gross

My guess is that your substrate was too moist.

I really don't consider it a problem. I think of it as an award


too many frogs to list in the allowed space

Mushrooms basically only grown when your environment is good. Usually you see a few, then they disappear. The frogs won't be harmed by them (think of all the mushrooms in the wild that frogs are around). It's just another way for nature to break down things. I like seeing the different mushrooms that pop up out of nowhere in my tanks.

I've had mushrooms in my tanks, and they've never hurt my frogs. Usually I remove them, just because I am inexperienced with mushrooms, so I always worry a little bit that it will turn out to be a harmful species of fungi, but they've never done any damage.

I had mushrooms and they were so neat last summer in my Milkfrog tank. Just enjoy them!
