  1. General Reef Discussion
    Hi all! I live in SE Florida and for a few weeks now I've been doing a little research on legally collecting wild corals in Florida. I know for a fact that zoas, ricordia, etc. can be found miles off the coast of this part of Florida if you dive, but unfortunately I only snorkel. Maybe...
  2. General Reef Discussion
    I took this pic this morning before the mushrooms inflated and hid the weird things, but I'd love a guess on what a couple of these are. I'm guessing the tan (okay phallic looking - LOL) thing in the front is some kind of sponge? However, the whitish thing in the middle is what has me most...

    I've had a ricordia mushroom for a few weeks now. I put it on a shelf on my rock that had very low flow and assumed it would eventually attach itself. It didn't. After 1 1/2-2 weeks it got blown onto the sand, so it still wasn't attached. I've heard you can't glue them on because they'll slime...

    Hi, some images of sliced up shrooms, @ the 3 week healing mark, recordia Yuma. 1/4's. Can see the actinopharynx, or mouth, developing on the side of this shroom:

  6. "Soft" corals
    i have 2 small, bright orange, or pink ricordia. one of them is fine and growing rather fast, but the other, although its always open, its usually shrunk up. For about three days now it has had its guts hangin out of its mouth, or atleast i think thats what it is, i tried attaching a pic, but...

    Ok, the brand new orange ric that I had under plastic netting tied to a rock is now missing from UNDER the netting! :angry: I guess from what I've now read that the peppermint shrimp is the most likely candidate!?! Other suspects include scarlet hermits, blue legged hermit, flame dwarf...

    How close can/should ricordia be placed near each other? Thanks, Mike
  11. "Soft" corals
    Well Salty--we have a beautiful ricordia for about a year now--and it has gotten bigger--but outside of that it has done nothing--what am I to do? What is your tank like--that you can keep it so happy?:lol:
  12. "Soft" corals
    I got this green ricordia about 2 weeks ago and it was doing great and opening up to 2x its size until 2 days ago. Now it seems shrinking and it does not really open up like before. I tried feeding it brine shrimp yesterday and it was closing up really slow!!! All the water parameters are fine...

    I just picked up some livestock yesterday from a local guy tearing down his tank. Everything looked OK (not great) in his, but it's all suffering in mine. I brought home a green yuma, 2 orange FL rics, a dwarf hermit, some zoo's, a damsel (went in the office tank), a few frags of green digi...

    I have 2 corals I would like to dell or trade. The first is a ricordia mushroom that just split on me and the new one fell into the gravel. It is orange and beautiful. The 2nd is a branch of Torch coral. I love it but I have a 14 gal and its tenticles are stinging things and making my other...
