Do they require more light than a regular mushroom polyp?

More?! So jealous. I am super nervous about them sitting at customs...makes me think 2ce about ordering online! Make sure you post pictures!

And about the lighting, moderate to light. They don't do well under strong lighting, although some will adapt. Have to acclimated to the light though.

Has anyone checked the ones on coralfanatics? They have a great selection. I would love a 10 pack!

I have a small green, but I'm getting an orange, a blue, and a normal blue mushroom

Rics are a PITA to get coral-glued, dipped, and out into the tank. But you gotta love them! No more corals for a while though...

It is more like 2 polyps I love it. More than my blue ric. My blue mushroom fell off where I put it but is staying on a ledge. I hope it stays.
