ZvZ with ultralisks

Just finished up a ZvZ game with maybe 10 zerglings max on the entire map at any time. Opponent went mega turtle into roach/hydra and I went hydra/festor. We both take the safe expansion and fight over who gets a third - at one point he killed my 3rd hatchery (again) and was prepping to push into my base but gets his roach squad cleaved by SUDDENLY ULTRALISK for a comeback push. Oddly enough, the only zerg counter to ultralisks seems to be.. MORE ULTRALISKS.

I'm really enjoying the hydra/festor/turtle build. A lot of people who try to muta/ling just give up before I even get anywhere near their base after losing their muta ball and they're still sitting in one base while I have my natural saturated. I'm still really bad with it though. I really should get a few roaches if it comes to a mid game ground push. They look attractive considering I have a lot of infestors on the field to justify burrow.
Ultralisk/ling late game is amazing. Just won a ZvZ with it.
Does Fungal growth work on ultralisks despite their frenzy? If so, the proper counter to ultralisks is fungal growth and anything with range.

Or mass mutas =P

edit: I think it's funny that after over 100 wins, I still don't know the answer to this question because games never get to ultralisks.
Pretty sure they're immune to FG with their frenzied tag. The game in mind I had hydra/ultras, i'm always worried about mutas in ZvZ. It's pretty easy to hide a drone and an overlord w creep on a secret spire - save up 1k gas and turn around 10 mutalisks out of nowhere.

Ultras cannot be snared, immobilized, or crowd controlled.
