Ricordea Mushroom Coral

By

Auckland, New Zealand

Posted Apr 10, 2015

I have 4 coral reef tanks. From 50 to 180 gallons and in all four of them I have a few Ricordea Mushroom Corals. These coral are beautiful, but not suitable in small fish aquarium. These corals might harm the small sized fish and that is the main reason why I am keeping them in larger tanks with larger fish. The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within it provides the majority of its nutritional requirements from the light driven process of photosynthesis. But I also feed them with plankton and smaller invertebrates such as crustaceans a few times weekly.
