This thing sprout up over night

When I turned the light on, I didn't notice it until a bit later. Thought it was a piece of paper from a distance or maybe a moth. Looking at it closer, I new it was a mushroom. It stunk add looked poisonous, so I carefully removed it. Some particles (for lack of a better word) dropped off before I even touched it. Hope it didn't fall into the water portion.

Thats just the part it puts up to spread spores. Most of the fungus will be out of sight. Thats why it grew so fast, it had the resources of a larger fungus body to support what amounts to a reproductive organ. So pull up those rocks and take pictures so we can see the whole thing.
That might be correct, although I didn't actually look. I didn't want to disrupt things at the time but looked at a later time and saw a hint of what you stated.
