Ricordea swelling

I never saw this happen before and can't find much info.

I feed my Ricordea daily with a couple spiralina brine shrimp. As I'm writing this the Ricordea is returning to normal.

I have many of them in my tank. They have been there for many years and are very large. I have never fed them. They get all they need from the lighting and water column. I personally would not feed them. They will grow just the same. Just make sure nothing is picking on it.

Mine swell like that occasionally. It's short lived. I think they may be expelling. I agree, I don't feed mine either.

I feed them as part of the routine when I feed everything else. If it's not bugging them then it's really no big deal for me. Just glad to know its not something weird/bad happening haha
