Product Description

The Orange Ricordea color morph of Ricordea florida is one of the most beautiful and  sought after ricordea available.  The photo is representative of what they look like, but there are quite a few subtle variations in the color of the body and the color of the mouth, so it’s really almost impossible to list all the different variations and keep track of them.  Our Orange Ricordea are all nice, so don’t worry about getting a dud.

Orange Ricordea polyps are great starter “corals” and add a nice splash of color to any reef tank.  They come from fairly shallow water and are photosynthetic, so they will thrive in a well-lit aquarium.  The will derive most of their nutrition from the symbiotic algae living in their tissues, but some sort of supplemental micro food will be beneficial to them.  The get along with other color morphs of Ricordea florida, so you can mix and match as you please.

These are loose polyps that are not attached to any substrate.  They will attach to almost any clean substrate in your tank, or can be epoxied or superglued to whatever substrate you want.  Ricordea florida are extremely hardy corallimorphs that add lots of color and variety to your aquarium.  All ricordea are photosynthetic and will require moderate light to thrive.  They also will need to be fed some sort of planktonic food, much like you would use for corals.  We suggest light dusting with some sort of small particle food will do the trick.
.

Please Note:  Any new fish purchased from us or from a local pet store should to be quarantined.  All fish from anywhere in the wild can be possible carriers of bacteria and protozoa that can lead to an infection in your system, so we always recommend that you use some sort of quarantine system prior to adding them to your system.  If you have a fish only system and can medicate the whole system, you may not need a separate quarantine tank.  If you have a reef system that cannot be medicated, a good ultraviolet sterilization system should prevent any kind of disease outbreak.  We medicate our system for bacterial infections and protozoans, but because we don’’t always hold our fish for long periods of time, there is no way to be sure all the protozoan cysts have been killed.  A little bit of prevention will save you lots of trouble down the line.

    Just wow. I have this orange ric over a year and the color is amazing. Its still as healthy as the day I received it. I have been waiting patiently until they had a yellow one in stock and I pounced as soon as I saw it!

    The orange and yellow are my favorites. They are bright under regular lighting but under my blue leds they POP like crazy!

    Great lookin Ric. Looks great next to the blue and green ric’s. Buy from Ken, his livestock is healthy, his shipping (2 day) is the best around, and the customer service is immediate and accomodating. You will not regret buying from Ken.

    I’ve had mine for a week now. It opened up on the first day and has a dramatic neon orange color. You can’t go wrong with rics from Sea Life Inc. The colors on all the rics I’ve ordered have all been bright and stunning. As always, packing was excellent and they arrived in perfect condition. Thanks!
