as long as your params are in check the new cut frags will do fine, if not better then they'd do in the 10 because its a more stable enviroment. id just put the frag rack alittle lower then normal for a few days so the newly cut pieces can adjust themselves to the lighting. maybe raise the rack 1''-3''s a day until its up closer to the top. thats just what i would do, see what works best for your situation.
or you can put some crushed coral shells in a plastic cup with hole.s so fresh water can flow ever so slightly in it, submerged into the main tank. Then put your newly frag mushroom into the cup. when the mushroom attach themsleves to the crush shell, superglue the crush shell to exactly where you want to put it on your live rock.( use super glue gel) that way you can aquascape the tank exactly the way you vision it. if you look closely to the left you'll see me doing just that using the red cup. i used a cleaning magnet to hold the cup in desired location where not too much current will disturb the mushrooms from floating around
