The Ricordea Mushroom, Ricordea sp., is a species of mushroom coral that is an excellent mushroom for beginner aquarists as it is easy to care for and raise in a home aquarium. They are also commonly known as Flower Mushroom Corals due to their beautiful colorations in greens, reds, oranges, and pinks. This particular specimen is more wholly colored in reds and oranges making it quite a spectacular specimen to behold in a reef tank. In caring for the Ricordea Mushroom, it is necessary to have the proper tank specifications: low waterflow is best with moderate to high lighting levels as well as a bottom placement in the tank. You will not need to feed the Ricordea Mushroom anything in particular as they receive most of their nutrients through the photosynthetic ability of micro zooxanthellae that inhabit the coral. Usually, the Ricordea Mushroom will ship as several polyps attached to the same piece of live rock - if any of the mushroom polyps become disattached, please attach back to the rock as they are still alive. They will often look wonderful under actinic lighting.
Nice color to the mushroom, and acclimated very well. I should have bought a few extras.

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.

I like them but they always move around and you never no where there going to be.

The picture doesn't do them justice! Their coloring is awesome! I was a little stumped at first because they are small and light so I had a hard time placing them in my tank between both the current and the fish blowing them around...but youtube is a wonderful thing. There are many great informative videos to help beginners such as myself learn about getting mushrooms and other frags to attach to the live rock.

Beautiful healthy specimens that pop during the day and look incredible under actinic lights as well.

Very nice mushroom. It seems very happy in the tank and has spread a bit since finding it's spot. The green/blue color looks great against the live rock. I have to say I didn't expect it to grow yet, but it has!
