Ricordea florida - "Ultra Orange Florida" Ricordea - 1" Single Polyp Stock Specimen

$32.00

Mushroom Corallimorphs are some of the hardiest and most colorful animals that we keep in our reef aquariums. They live up to their namesake, resembling terrestrial mushrooms in shape, and come in a stunning array of colors and patterns. Interestingly enough, they are close cousins of both corals and anemones. Most have symbiotic relationships with zooxanthellae, although these animals don’t require as much light as many corals or anemones. Some are equipped to absorb nutrients directly from the water column, and still others are actually able to take larger prey items.
