Ricordea florida

Ricordea florida, is a mushroom coral. They are usually found in Carribean seas and they are usually the favorite of many hobbyists. They are in shade of pink, red, purple, green and blue, which makes them look fantastic as they fluoresce under the moon.

They are not very difficult to keep, because they only require less amount of lighting and water parameters. Feeding regularly is good but do not overfeed them because it can lead the water to get foul.

These corals are not really competitive with other corals. But then again give them enough space to grow to prevent the physical aggression among other species in the tank.

It is a perfect idea to place them with live rocks. You can use epoxy or even glue to attach them both. Provide them with a proper water flow to wash away the slime and mucus and to keep the water condition in line which can heal them in a matter of week.
