This coral is hardy and tolerant of many different aquarium conditions. They are easy to keep and colorful. Ricordea florida are moderately fast growers. We recommend attached them to the liverock in the aquarium.
It is important to give corals their own space in the aquarium. We recommend giving them at least 2-3+ inches of their own space so they do not sting or irritate other corals. This will also give them room to grow in the aquarium.
This coral variety is peaceful and considered safe with our larger species (not Dwarf seahorses) of seahorses.
Like our captive bred seahorses, we recommend using RODI water when mixing your saltwater. Corals can be sensitive to improper water quality. We recommend the same water parameters we do for our captive bred seahorses and fish.

Please note: Coral color and appearance varies. Differences in light, glass, water parameters, and many other factors can influence how a coral appears so it may appear different in your aquarium. Many coral species will "close up" during shipping and can take a day or up to a week or more to open. This is normal and expected when you receive them.
