  2. Wow, that's really amazing! It kind of looks like underwater turkey tail fungus:
    Turkey Tail - Trametes versicolor <br />
Turkey Tail gets its name from the fact that it sort of resembles a turkey's tail. The caps were bracket-shaped, thin, velvety, and had concentric zones of blue, brown, and tan. The pores were white. <br />
