    Ricordea moving ?

    Do ricordea move on their own ? I woke up this morning and noticed one of them has moved about 4-5 inches and dont think the current could have been strong enough to push it... it hasn't flipped upside down or anything either, looks almost like it crawled over like an anemone would.

    i would say that it is possible for a ricordea to move since its a mushroom. my shrooms detach and reattach somewhere else. they do this often.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:

    I've awoken to the same thing, nbreau- I think it is normal. They will move to get more light or to move away from the mother colony when multiplying.

    cool, i think mine are moving away from the ligh since they are moving lower in the tank. Both look like they are in the middle of splitting as well.

    How/What do you feed ricordea ?
