Based on availability, we will choose one Ricordea Mushroom Polyp from our inventory.  You will receive one polyp from the following colors: Green, Blue, Orange, Yellow, or Rainbow.  The Mushroom Polyp looks awesome in any reef tank. These corallimorphs are covered with short tentacles. The Mushroom Polyp is very easy to maintain and can grow and propagate very easily in an aquarium. It is recommended to keep the Mushroom Polyp away from other corals just to avoid the aggression in the aquarium. They need low water flow and moderate illumination.
The Mushroom Polyp can be placed anywhere in your marine aquarium. Often, you will find them closed when you introduce it into the tank. Once the Mushroom Polyp gets acclimated to the environment, it will open up.  It also shows symbiotic relationship with Zooxanthellae, which lives inside the tissue and provides nutrition to the coral. In return the corals provide shelter to these Zooxanthellae. Apart from the photosynthesis, it can also be fed with additional supplements of phytoplankton and shrimps for continued health growth. The Mushroom Polyp shows the beautiful color effects in presence of actinic lighting.
