Blue Florida Ricordea

Ricordea Florida are one of the most recognizable species to come out of the Caribbean. These Ricordea are mostly solid blue/teal in color however they can develop multi-color tentacles across their face. Each polyp is roughly 1" in diameter.They live up to their namesake, resembling terrestrial mushrooms in shape, and come in a stunning array of colors and patterns. Interestingly enough, they are close cousins of both corals and anemones. Most have symbiotic relationships with zooxanthellae, although these animals don’t require as much light as many corals or anemones. Some are equipped to absorb nutrients directly from the water column, and still others are actually able to take larger prey items.
