    Well just thought I'd share some insight I've learned having Ricordia for a couple months now. Feed them! Especially if you have a coral only/no fish tank like me...

    I noticed mine starting to shrink so I have started feeding them a meaty mulch of Formula 1. They seem to like it a lot and are beginning to fill out.

    I also hear they like bits of silversides. FYI!

    I feed my tank mysis daily and add cyclopeze with Zoe vitamins every few days. Food is also available when I clean the glass of course. My Ricordia as well as all the mushrooms are fine with no special or target feeding.

    That's cool. Sounds like you have a lot more going in than I do.

    Just noticed that the beautiful orang Ricordia I got from Rogue Corps has split and now there are two!

    Matt, I started target feeding my ricordia with silversides and it is about to split. My ricordia are the exact same color as yours.
