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 or purple and be quite vibrant. This variety comes from the Florida waters.
Ricordea require at least moderate light levels but very high intensity metal halide lighting may cause the colors to fade. Place Ricordea florida 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.
Chalic corals will form plates and folds with heavy tissue. Chalice corals are typically very colorful. The edges may become ridged with corallite bumps. Echinophyllia corals are slow growing. Chalice corals in general like moderate to higher lighting and moderate to higher flow.
