These are beautiful, steel blue ricordea polyps, Ricordea florida, from Florida. These are single polyps (one mouth), and are not attached to any substrate. They can take intense light, but will thrive in medium light conditions as well. All of the ricordea we sell are extremely hardy and are great for any level of reef keeper, from the novice to the pros. In the wild they eat the organic dust and silt that settles on them, so when feeding them dust them with food.
Ricordea reproduce primarily by division, so eventually the polyp will form two mouths and begin to divide. If you are pondering doing this, I would suggest you do some more homework before you try it.
Ricordea ship real well by Priority Mail.
