The Ricordea Florida Mushroom Coral is one of the more colorful members of the Corallimorpharia family. This exceptional species does not have a skeleton and has a similar internal anatomical configuration as corals within the Scleractinia family. It has the body structure that can best be described as petite and globular.

It is not aggressive and would make good tank mates to most established coral colonies. But still be weary and make sure that you provide sufficient space for both the established colony and the newly introduced Ricordea Florida Coral to thrive. No matter the species, it is always a good idea to give all the corals in your tank plenty of space to grow and thrive.

With all of its astonishing colors they are guaranteed to attract attention. Ricordea mushrooms are usually bright or even fluorescent in intensities. The Ricordea Florida comes in several colorful combinations which including; green, orange, yellow, blue, and purple with blue, orange or purple rings surrounding a contrasting middle color. Due to a brilliant variety of colors, the Ricordea genus are some of the most sought after mushrooms around today. They can fetch a large price that is if the color is intense and rare enough.

The Ricordea Florida, unlike most other Mushroom Coral requires moderate attention and can tolerate more light. In addition, unlike with other Mushroom Corals, this one does not multiply as quickly or prospers as much under direct Metal Halides; therefore indirect light would do the trick. They can also handle moderate to high water flow. This is due to the fact that they grow extremely tight against any surface they are initiated on. If the coral does not get the sufficient lighting and/or water they will just float around the tank until they find a suitable spot that meets their preferences or have an unpleasant encounter with a pump. Like other species of mushrooms, the Ricordea Florida Coral can handle higher nitrates than SPS or LPS corals.

In order to keep a happy and healthy Ricordea Florida Mushroom Coral would will have to; change the water 10% bi-monthly or 20% a month, provide a reef atmosphere with proper magnesium levels, proper iodine levels are also essential. Due to their toxicity, adding active carbon would also be a good idea, especially for larger colonies of mushrooms.

This mushroom coral are carnivorous and photosynthetic. They require supplemental feeding of small leafy foods like planktons and brine shrimp, in addition to its diet of macro algae tissue.

Most Ricordea Florida Mushroom Corals grow and reproduce slowly; therefore knowing how to properly frag them can certainly speed up the process. They are however fragile and respond less well to fragging so if you are a first time fragger it is advised not to started with your cherished Ricordea centre piece. Instead practice on similar little expensive corals. Since the Ricordea Florida Coral Mushroom do not require a lot, keeping them alive and well in your tanks is not too complicated. In reality, all they require is proper lighting and water constraints.

The Ricordea Florida Mushroom Coral are known to inhabit the Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. In the wild this genus of coral can be found growing on rocky surfaces, rubble, or growing upright on dead corals. The Ricordea Florida Mushroom Coral was discovered by the famous 19th century aquatic explorer duel of Duchassaing and Michelotti in 1860, which are also credited in discovering the Florida Corallimorpharian, False Coral, Coral Anemone, and Stubby Anemone.

Most experts will concur that this coral is the king of the Corallimorphs, and as far as they are concerned there are none that can compare to their illustrious color combinations, growth speed and easiness of care.

Ricordea Multipack Review
I have to say the first package on was dead on arrival.(the random hot/cold weather im having here could be the case) HOWEVER, Reef2go customer support have been fairly quick in getting back a response to me. When the second package came the mushrooms were a bit shrivel as to be expected as the weather here is cold, but after 2 days they are open and thriving with beautiful colors. I have referred a few of my friends to this site. And rest assure you can buy from this company with confidence....
