I can't help with the specifics but you may find some food for thought in the
following papers :-

Knight, H. et al. (1993) 
Confocal microscopy of living fungal hyphae microinjected with Ca2+-sensitive 
fluorescent dyes. Mycological Research 97(12), 1505-1515

Read, N.D. et al. (1992)
Imaging and measurement of cytosolic free calcium in plant and fungal cells.
Journal of Microscopy Vol 166, Part 1 April 1992, 57-86
