I should have purchased more.
Nice color to the mushroom, and acclimated very well. I should have bought a few extras.

Ricordea mushroom
Received a 1-1/2" polyp. It started opening up in the acclimation bucket right away. Tissue is vibrant and healthy. I'm sure it'll start spreading in no time. Wish it came on an actual plug though. This polyp looks like it was plucked straight off of the rock.
