Chaos Libra Ricordia Yuma is WYSIWYG! The Ricordea, or Flower Mushroom Coral has short, club, or berry-shaped tentacles. It shares some similarities to stony corals, and is also termed a Disc Anemone. It is found in a variety of color forms, but green is the most common.
Ricordea yuma mushrooms are a Pacific species of corallimorph. Their body is covered with an irregular mat of short bubble-like tentacles and they come in a wide array of colors. Ricordea yuma can be sensitive and challenging so we do not recommend them for beginners.
It requires a medium to high light level, but metal halide lighting may be too bright. It prefers a low water movement within the aquarium, and it may not be as hardy as some of the other mushroom corals. It is considered semi-aggressive and requires adequate space between itself and other corals. It reproduces by longitudinal fission.
The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within it provides the majority of its nutritional requirements from the light driven process of photosynthesis. It also eats plankton and smaller invertebrates such as crustaceans.
