    Hi Guys, I bought this from the LFS on Friday being sold as a mushroom. Can anyone confirm if this is ricodea and what type?

    everyone is right :thumbup:
    Ricordea Yuma = a Mushroom species
    This one look like it did not get a lot of light and might colour up in the future.

    Be careful of the extra light; Yuma's are meant to not like a lot of light. They are often happiest out of direct lighting especially not MH. The also apparently like a slightly cooler temperature than most reef aquariums. (±24°)
