    I bought this late yesterday, I thought it was some form of polyps and when I asked I was told it was a single ricordia which is what I was actually look for. I put it in my tank last night and the more it opens and the more I look at it the less I think it's ricordia or polyps.

    Thanks. Was worried I may have got some kind of anemone by mistake, the tentacles put me off as some of the seem inflated.

    Ricordeas are mushrooms... What makes you think that it is not a ricordea?

    It could possibly be a ricordea. My ric sometimes deflates and looks as yours is now but its orange.

    Cool will give it some times and take more pics. Are ric's prone to moving around?

    It's a ricordea Yuma from what I can tell in the tiny pic on my phone :p

    They don't move like an anemone would, but mushrooms can move along the rock work and as they do so leave little bits behind which grow into new mushrooms/rics
