    After feeding corals with a mix of oyster feast, zoo, and phytoplankton, this shroom swelled to 3 times his thickness. Happened the next time I feed him too so I stopped feeding him. Still swells a little when I feed other corals. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

    Is that really a ricordea? Got pics of him before being fed? I've never seen one that looked like that.

    Normal response as others have said, but it almost looks like a yuma. Very nice, all the same!
