Ricordea yuma mushrooms are a Pacific species of corallimorph. Their body is covered with an irregular mat of short bubble-like tentacles and they come in a wide array of colors. Ricordea yuma can be sensitive and challenging so we do not recommend them for beginners.
Ricordea yuma are found throughout the Indo-Pacific reefs.
Ricordea yuma mushrooms tend to do better under more intense lighting than their Caribbean siblings. Try keeping them in middle to high light.
Low light translates to about 30-50 PAR
Medium Light is between 50-150 PAR
High Light is anything over 150 PAR
We recommend keeping the mushrooms in a relatively low flow area of the reef display. Too much flow could cause this particular species to become stressed and not extend fully or blow around the tank.
Ricordea derives much of its energy from the products of their zooxanthellae. They can be fed small morsels of food however and may benefit from regular feeding.
PropagationThis genus for the most part has been propagated extensively in captivity and is an excellent candidate for aquaculture. It is reasonable to believe that a sustainable harvest can be achieved in time.
