Product Description

These are beautiful, steel blue ricordea polyps, Ricordea florida, from Florida

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.

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.

    i got one of these and I am not a really big fan, maybe mine is not as well colored as some of the others people have gotten, but as far as rics go it is kind of dull, IMO.

    Absolutely beautiful. Looks just like the photo…only better! Has only been in the tank about a month and has already grown considerably. Loves to be handfed small pieces of frozen shrimp.

    This is by far my favorite ricordea that I’ve gotten from Ken. While my others have grown and multiplied this one has remained a single polyp but it is HUGE, mine has a pink mouth and is just stunning and very unique looking. LOVE it!

    I love this ricordea! The colour is amazing, and it was open in my tank within minutes.
