Photo of the Week - Aquacultured Ricordea yuma

There are two species included the the genus of Ricordea, Yuma from the Pacific, and Florida from the Caribbean. These aquacultured Yuma show the slightly longer tentacles that are one of the hallmarks of their species.

Care for Ricordea genus is pretty straightforward, moderate to high light, low to moderate flow, and carbon or some other way to reduce chemical competition with other corals in your system. Feedings will help them grow more quickly. As with most corals, acclimate them to higher light scenarios slowly.
