The ricordia follow the same rules that most corals do, 1st priority is to preserve itself, whatever strength is left after that goes to healing injuries, whats left over then goes to growth, and finally the excess goes to reproduction. I would probablly check to make sure that the ricordea is getting an ample amount of what it needs nutritionally be that light or water quality, etc. if you want to see it split.
The couple I keep in my tank split pretty frequently. If you get to that point you can start splitting them yourself if you want. I split a pink/purple/green colored ricordea every six weeks for aquaculture. Its really amazing how regenerative they are. Mine get indirect semi shaded light on the sandbed via 2X400W MH
, about 26 inches down. They get a non laminar, medium fluxuating to strong current.
Here's to swimmin with bowlegged women.
