Whoa!! Blue Ricordea Mushroom

I was browsing liveaquaria and ran across this!!!!


http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...m?pCatId=2043&cc=1

And I want one!!! how hard are these to keep?

Right now I've just have regular NO fluorescent will it just die if I get one? This would be my first coral so any and all advise would be very very helpful.

They keep easily. Just like a mushroom although, you may want a bit better lighting. Maybe PC.

That seems like a very good deal, even with shipping. Keep in mind, the pic is always better than the real thing.

Wait until after the upgrade. Ricordia sp. require good lighting, at least HO fluorescents, in order to keep their color. They are the most light demanding mushrooms IME. Also the change in lighting will just add additional and unnecessary stress to the animal. Patience yields the best results
