This ricordea is over one and a half inches when expanded.
Ricordea is a type of mushroom coral of moderate size. It can be identified by the fact that it has contrasting raised dots across its surface. The colors can range from orange, blue, brown, green, purple or combinations and be quite vibrant. This variety comes from the Florida waters.
Ricordea require at least moderate light level, but very high intensity metal halide lighting may cause the colors to fade. Place Ricordea in low water motion for best expansion. Although they are slow growing corals, growth of this coral can lead to encroachment on its neighbors where it is able to effectively kill other coral that it comes into contact with.
Ricordea are photosynthetic and survive fine with no feeding.
