Specifications

Overview

The Pacific Ricordea is a member of the order Corallimorpharia, and has short, club, or berry-shaped tentacles. It shares some similarities to stony corals, and is also termed a Disc Anemone.

> It is found in a variety of color forms, but this type has a blue base with orange tips. This type of mushroom is highly prized by the avid collector and makes a vibrant addition to the reef aquarium.

Collected in small numbers, this coral is in very high demand by the discriminating reef aquarist.

It requires a low to medium light level, but metal halide lighting may be too bright, so when using halides, place the coral at the bottom of the aquarium, under an overhang.

It prefers a low water movement within the aquarium. It is considered semi-aggressive and requires adequate space between itself and other corals. It reproduces by longitudinal fission.

The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within it provide the majority of its nutritional requirements from the light driven process of photosynthesis. It also eats plankton and smaller invertebrates such as crustaceans.

This mushroom is supplied as one individual mushroom attached to a rock.
