    Shroom id pls

    I was thinking that this might be a Florida Ricordia or a warty.

    And this one a Rhodactis (spelling??)
    They're hard to get a good photo of as they're at the back of the tank and the cameras not taking very good zoom shots and all macros are fuzzy.
    I'll try and get some better pics tonight.

    I've only had them 4 days and second one was had lost it's color and the first is starting to show more polyps every day.
    They not too fancy, but we very rarely get ric's here so any is a good one!!

    Both are Rhodactis as far as I can tell from your photos, although the second photo might be a Ricordia Yuma. Definately neither are Ricorda Florida.

    Thanks.
    The second one has very long "polyps" and I can't see a mouth in any them, (There are 5 on the rock), I bought them for $4.
    The first is starting to show polyps around/on the mouth. (another $4 rock of 4)
    I might use the camcorder to get a better pic.
    Rics and rhodactis are extemely rare here, as we can't import them and they're only found in remote parts that divers don't go to, and don't know what they're looking for anyway.
