Ricordia

Hey everyone.

Would love to see pictures of your ricordia and any information you have discovered over the years about these beautiful creatures. We plan to make our 6g a ricordia tank and cannot wait to add more!

Here are some shots of our newest addition.

Look forward to chatting about them and seeing other's photos!

Holding you to that! Haha

And I haven't bought anything for my tank lately, just my parents, and now I feel as if I'm gonna have a hard time holding back! Haha all depends on the LFS and their ricordia shipments! Lol

Florida rics seem to be the most popular. There are Haitian ones too. Also check out the pink Yuma or the red Yuma...beautiful.

I also found a good site. coralfanatics.com. They show you the actual frag you get

What You See Is What You Get (aka Eye It Buy It) is actually pretty popular.

15 pack seems a little much. I like a few corals at a time. Plus, I have like no more coral room already. Guess it is time for more fish... LOL

We don't have much in it now. Its a 6g and like I said we wanna make it just ricordia. We have some neon green mushrooms, a green hairy mushroom and toadstool. Have a twin spot goby and an emerald crab and the usual CUC. Some sort of weedy polyp that seems to be taking over and a pulsating blue xenia. And the new ricordia of course. If 15 would be too much my parents would take a couple...just would be a better deal and the more moolah you spend the better shipping rate you get. We have a 30g not set up...have to wait til I buy a house bc we don't wanna move it. So they could go in there in the future too

Oh and lighting. We have a compact bulb with LED lights added. Seems to do the trick for now.

Sorry, wasnt paying attention. I will probably get a xenia too, in the future. Post picks of the polyps? look up in google images "zoanthids", "yellow polyp coral", and "palythoa coral" and see if that works

They look like clove polyps, and expensive at that they are totally harmless
