OG Bounce Mushrooms, also known as "bounce" or "BOUNCER" mushrooms, are a type of mushroom coral that have become extremely popular in the reef keeping hobby in recent years.

These mushrooms are known for their unique appearance, which features a wavy, bumpy texture and bright, vibrant colors ranging from orange to green to blue. They are also highly coveted by hobbyists because of their relative rarity and high cost.

The exact origin of OG Bounce Mushrooms is unclear, but they are believed to have first appeared in the hobby around 2014. They quickly gained a reputation as a highly sought-after and valuable coral, and their popularity has only continued to grow since then.

One reason for the popularity of OG Bounce Mushrooms is their ability to propagate relatively quickly, making them a popular coral to trade or sell within the hobby. 

Unlike a lot of corals that become a fad in the hobby, OG Bounce Mushrooms remain a highly desirable and prized addition to many reef tanks, and they continue to be a major trend in the hobby.
