This is before



Attachment 90142



Now it appears to have moved? It looks like its peeling of the rock it came with. And it's leaving like little tiny Yuma's in its place. Is this normal? Water parameters are all in check. And it opens beautifully during the day.

Also I've had it for 3 months.

Here are the pics now. Sorry of the poor quality the lights are dimming down.

Also it's not in any direct hard flow area.

If it is opening in the day, moving in one direction, and leaving behind babies, I would say it is doing just what that sounds like - reproducing. Though some say Mushrooms are sessile, mine move periodically, usually just to make space for the babies.
If it's opening fine during the day, I wouldn't worry about it.

If it's breeding, then sounds like it's just fine where it is. Since Ricordia can be a little pricey, if you can chip off rock with one attached, you may be able to sell them as they get bigger.
