Ricordea Mushroom Coral Pack

No Ugly Colors or Small Polyps Here!

Description: No ugly colors or small polyps here! Many colors of ricordea and quantity packages to choose from. Like all our corals and fish, all ricordea have been in our tanks for an extended length of time to get beyond the stress of moving from the ocean to an aquarium. All have excellent color, and are 11/4 - 13/4 inches when fully inflated. All ricordea are attached to rubble or small pieces of rock and are easy to glue down to either one large rock or a number of small rocks if you wish to. Ricordea mushrooms are an easy to keep great beginner coral.. They generally reproduce rapidly in captivity and spead over rockwork moving toward the light. They are sure to stand out in any reef aquarium.

If you wish, you can mount your Ricordea Mushrooms using IC gel glue, or aquarium epoxy putty, in the bottom half of the aquarium where they can reproduce and expand their colonies over the rock. If you do not want them growing on your your main rock structure try creating a mushroom island by mounting several types of mushrooms to one larger rock and placing it as an island in your sand bed.

Placment: We recommend that you place your mushroom corals at the bottom of your tank and in a low flow area if possible. If you’re placing it in a high light or high flow area, watch it for a few days. If it’s unhappy it will have a shriveled look to its disc, a happy mushroom coral is a fully extended flat disc. If the coral stays unhappy, try moving to a lower lighted area with less flow if possible. Once your mushroom coral shows the full extended disc it will most likely thrive in that spot.

Lighting and Water Flow: Ricordea Mushrooms require low to moderate water flow and low to moderate lighting (PAR 80-250). T5's, Metal Halides, or LED's can all grow Ricordea Mushrooms when the proper PAR levels are provided. We recommend a 14-20K color spectrum for best coloration.

Feeding: Mushroom corals are a photosynthetic coral and do not need to be directly fed. The coral produces its food from the lights on your tank. Typically if you read coral articles they always recommend that you make sure you feed your corals whether it’s through direct feeding or putting coral food into your water column. On the flip side though, with mushrooms we feel confident saying that if your water parameters are in check, mushroom corals are going to grow and thrive no matter if you specifically feed them or not.

What Do I get? The Ricordea Mushroom Package ships as either Three, Five, Ten, or Twenty Five individual mushrooms depending on the package chosen, attached to rock or gravel.

   Mushroom Coral Pack

Multiple Mushroom Corals on Rock are Perfect to
Fill in those gaps in your reef aquarium.


Description: Now is your chance to fill in some of those gaps in your reef aquarium with some really nice mushroom corals. We are offering a combo pack of very nice mushroom rocks we are certain you will enjoy. Guaranteed to add the perfect touch to both your established reef or your new one.

Mushroom corals, are very hardy corals, and one of the best for the beginner reef aquarium.
Mushrooms simply do not require the same level of husbandry, largely because they are remarkably tolerant of a very wide range of environmental conditions. In short, mushrooms are one of the most forgiving animals for the novice reef aquarist to consider keeping as he or she hones his or her reef-keeping skills. Among one of the best beginner corals, they can even be maintained in aquariums with just sand substrate, live rock, and an airstone for water movement and oxygenation. This is because they will tolerate high levels of nitrate and other organic compounds. They will do even better, and their colors will brighten in an aquarium with low levels of organic compounds. Most mushroom coral prefer indirect light or shade so high power lighting is not required.

Sometimes during shipping a mushroom may release itself from the rock or gravel it was adhered to, but will reattach to a new piece of substrate once adjusted to their new aquarium. By no mean does this indicate any problem with the mushrooms health, they are alive and just would rather not be attached at that moment to the rock or gravel it was attached to.

Lighting and Water Flow: Mushroom corals require low to moderate water flow and low to moderate lighting (PAR 80-250). T5's, Metal Halides, or LED's can all grow Mushroom corals when the proper PAR levels are provided. We recommend a 14-20K color spectrum for best coloration.

  Leather Coral Pack

4 High End Leather Corals Chosen for You!
Description: Leather corals are very popular due to their low demands towards water quality and other factors which make them easier to care for. They will thrive in less than optimal conditions where most hard corals would not survive. There are a number of different leather corals available; most are very hardy in nature. Good choices for the beginner would be Sinularia (finger leathers), Lobophytum (cabbage corals), and Sarcophyton (toadstool leathers).

Generally speaking, leather corals are a soft skinned coral with visible polyps all over their skin. The do not have a calcified skeleton structure making them a little more tolerant of some water parameters like calcium. There are hundreds of different species of leather corals. Properly identification of the exact species can sometime be very difficult as their shape can altered due to environmental factors such as temperature, salinity, light intensity and water movement to name a few. A coral may look one way in a aquarium and then (over time) look very different when placed in another tank.

Lighting Recomendations: As these corals contain zooxanthellae inside their body, they will be able to get most of their required nutrients through your tanks lighting. This is why it is important to have at least moderate levels of lighting in your tank. T5 Flourescent's, Power compacts, LED Lighting, or Halides all will do well.

Water Flow: A typical reef environment is what is needed for Leather Corals. They are generally very hardy and will thrive in a properly maintained reef aquarium. Most need a moderate to strong water flow. This is best accomplished with a single or multiple powerheads dependent on tank size. If you want to get fancy you can even add a wave maker!

Feeding: Leathers can also get nutrients from the water. They can collect microplankton and zooplankton with their polyps to obtain the nutrition they require. They would certainly benefit from the occasional spot feeding. You can compensate for lower lighting with manually feeding a leather to sustain for short periods of time. Most leathers will do best when they get their needed nutrition from both the water and your tank lighting

 Soft Coral 6 Pack

Includes (2) Polyping Corals, (2) Leather Corals, (2) Mushroom Corals

Description: When beginning to stock your tank with corals you need to make sure that the conditions you will be placing them in will be suitable. For example, an Acropora coral would not be best placed in a low energy environment (low flow and low light). A more suitable coral for this type of environment would be a member of the soft corals family.

The lower lighting and flow requirements of soft corals make them less demanding, and will also keep cost down! For soft corals the calcium uptake is lower than hard corals (SPS), so this is another thing that we do not have to worry about.

Soft corals are some of the most attractive corals found in the world's oceans. They are quite fascinating, taking many exotic forms and often have a very rich and colorful palette. Small cuttings of soft corals are easily collected from the wild. They are less prone to damage or ailments from collecting and shipping than the stony corals. Many species thrive and will grow quickly in captivity. Many of the popular soft corals are successfully propagated in captivity.


Lighting Recommendations: All of the corals within the Soft Coral Pack will thrive under multiple standard fluorescent lights, power compacts, T5 Lighting or LED Lighting.

Water Flow: A typical reef environment is what is needed for Soft Corals. They are generally very hardy and will thrive in a properly maintained reef aquarium. Most need a moderate to strong water flow. This is best accomplished with a single or multiple powerheads dependent on tank size, with or without a wavemaker. They do need good water quality maintained, so a protein skimmer and frequent water changes are very helpful therefore recommended.

Feeding: As these corals contain zooxanthellae inside their body, they will be able to get most of their required nutrients through your tank lighting. This is why it is important to have at least moderate levels of lighting in your tank. Leathers can also get nutrients from the water. They can collect microplankton and zooplankton with their polyps to obtain the nutrition they require. They would certainly benefit from the occasional spot feeding. You can compensate for lower lighting with manually feeding a leather to sustain for short periods of time.

  Nano Polyping Coral Pack

Description: Both Zoanthid polyps and Palythoa polyps (Zoa's Big Brother) are colonial corals, and most are great corals for the beginner aquarist. Most Zoa's and Palythoa's are extremely hardy and require only moderate lighting, but will adjust to reef aquariums that have stronger lighting. Both Zoanthids and Palythoa's will reproduce in the reef aquarium fairly easily. Regularly you will see new polyps called buds, which will increase the size of the colony. Since both Zoanthids and Palythoa's get their food from light, this means they require minimal feeding. Light provides the corals an internal form of the symbiotic algae called zooxanthellae which provides almost all of their nutritional requirements. If the lighting is not optimal, we highly recommend they should be fed some sort of meaty particle food. We recommend either one of the many available micro-plankton's, mysis shrimp, or baby brine shrimp. Zoanthids and Palythoa's are corals which have been given unigue names by aquarist's. Names such as Keds Reds, Lunar Eclipse, Lemon Limes, Purple Death, Fruit Loops, and Tubbs Blue are just a few of the hundreds of Zoa's and Paly's out there. Although they are excellent choices for the beginner reef, they are just as popular choices for the more experienced reef aquarist wanting to collect these beauties as well.
Tank Size: The Nano Polyping Coral Pack is ideal for any reef aquarium of at least 10 gallons with live rock for added biological filtration.

Water Flow: All of the corals within the Nano Polyping Coral Pack will thrive under multiple standard fluorescent lights, power compacts, T5 Lighting or LED Lighting. Again if lighting of the lower end of the scale is used, make sure you supplement with feedings. For water movement the Nano Polyping Coral Pack prefers moderate water flow within the aquarium. This is best accomplished with a single or multiple powerheads dependent on tank size, with or without a wavemaker.

Feeding: All of the corals included are photosynthetic and do not require supplemental feeding. However again, if lighting is on the lower end of the scale make sure you supplement with feedings with one or more of the following: zooplankton, brine and mysis shrimp.

Pack information: It is common you will receive a rock that has room for more polyp growth. As your corals grow the polyps will spread across its rock and any surrounding rocks. Each Coral Polyp Pack consists of a mix of different nice polyp rocks. The coral polyps we include can be a combination of Zoanthids, Palythoa's, and star polyping corals. Depending on availability, we provide a good mix of both colors and species. When ordering multiple packs we will give you a diverse assortment of colors for your reef aquarium.

Approximate Inflated Size: 1" to 2" per rock

ORA Aquacultured SPS Acropora Packs


Description: The ORA Aquacultured Acro Pack will add a simply awesome splash of color to any reef tank. One very important point,to consider when purchasing this package is that these acros are not just mounted frags from a reef tank. Think of ORA's Aquacultured (also called Captive Grown sometimes) Acropora as Baby SPS acro's all sized between approximately 2 inches and 3 inches and are mounted on 1/2 inch diameter plugs. Aquacultured corals such as offered by ORA are the future of the reef aquarium hobby. All of our ORA Acro packs contain pure aquacultured specimens, many generations removed from the original wild starter colonies. No tissue or skeleton of the wild specimen remain. All are third, fourth, fifth and even older generations. We have hundreds of colorful ORA Acro's available. Acro's chosen will be well encrusted to their base on which they are grown and are never sold until they are truely ready. When you purchase any of our ORA Captive Grown Acro Pack's you will receive either 3, 5 or 7 acros combined to give you a good variety of both color and species. We hand select all your pieces, so we are very sure you will be happy with our choices.
Lighting and Water Flow: Acropora Coral requires moderate to high water flow and bright lighting (PAR 300-450) to maintain its color. T5's, Metal Halides, or LED's can all grow acropora when the proper PAR levels are provided. We recommend a 14-20K color spectrum for best coloration.
Water Chemistry: It is important that proper calcium (420-440 ppm), alkalinity (8-9.5 dkh - run it 7-8 if you are carbon dosing) , and magnesium levels (1260-1350 ppm) are maintained. Raising magnesium levels gradually up to 1400-1600 ppm can help to combat algae outbreaks, just keep CA and Alk in line as you raise the Mg. Nitrates should be below 10 ppm and phosphates should be below .10 ppm. We recommend doing a water change when Nitrate levels rise to 10 ppm. It is important to replace your phosphate media when phosphates rise to .10 ppm. Media Reactors make the most efficient use of your phosphate media by fluidizing it.
Placement: DO NOT CUT THE ACROPORA FROM THE MOUNT AT THIS TIME. After about 4 weeks in your reef aquarium, your new Acro's should be adjusted to your tank. Then you may carefully mount your SPS using IC gel glue, or putty, on an exposed rock or ledge in the aquarium where it still will receive direct flow and light. Make sure the mounting location is in the same area as your Acropora was prior to mounting so the conditions are the same.
Feeding: All your SPS corals will be happier when they are fed. The mouth sizes for each polyp is relative to the body size of the polyp and this size will more or less determine the particle size a coral can eat. We have found that even the smallest of SPS polyps, even Anacropora will accept food. There are several coral foods available to the aquarium hobbyist and we generally mix up a few with varying particle sizes and target feed this to all of our corals. We’ve had success feeding all our corals and find our Echinophyllia (chalice corals) Montiporas, Acroporas especially A. millepora among others respond well to feeding. When you are feeding your corals you will want to turn off the flow in your tank and gently target each coral. We like to feed our corals at the end of the day when the lights are still on their daytime light setting. You can even try broadcasting some food in the tank before you target feed as a “dinner bell” for your corals, or try polyp lab reef booster as a way to prepare your corals to feed. We recommend feeding your corals several times per week. After a few days of feeding your corals should be responding quicker to your dinner bell and looking all and all more vibrant. Some of the benefits we have noticed after 2-3 week included more polyp extension, puffier body tissue, more colourful, increased growth (compared to unfed corals). Excellent SPS Cora food include Phyto Feast, Oyster Feast, Roti Feast, Phyto Plankton, Zoo Plankton, Marine Snow, Coral Frenzy, Cyclops. We also always recommend target feeding since it gets the corals fed using less food while keeping your nitrates and phosphates lower.
Approximate Size: (depends on species) 1" to 3"
What Do I get? When you purchase any of our Assorted Aquacultured Acropora Pack's you will receive either a 3, 5, or 7 pack which provides a good variety of both color and species.

  Beginner LPS Coral Packages

Description: LPS Corals encompass a broad and interesting range of species. Some of the most popular corals for beginners in the saltwater aquarium hobby include LPS corals; which is simply an acronym for large polyp stony corals. Large polyp stony corals are popular amongst beginner aquarists for several different reasons. First, they require far less light than the SPS species (Small Polyp Stony Coral), therefore requiring less expensive lighting for the reef aquarium. Second, they are far more likely to breed or successfully fragment in captivity than SPS coral are. Last, but not least they require less maintenance, such as; water changes, chemical adjustments, temperature regulation, etc… This is not to say however that they are the easiest to care for. Like any salt water marine animal, the LPS group of corals are somewhat sensitive and will not thrive unless their needs are met consistently.
Lighting and Water Flow: LPS corals require a moderate light level. T5's, Metal Halides, or LED's can all grow LPS corals when the proper PAR levels are provided. Actually all of the above can be to bright for first placing your LPS corals in. We recommend with LPS to start your corals at the bottom of the tank and slowly, say every 7 to 10 days, bring the corals up a little until the desired placement is achieved. In this manner you will not harm your new corals by saturating them with too much light. For water flow requirements, you want enough water flow to keep algae and other contaminents off of your coral. This will require at least a medium amount of water flow.
Placement: Like stated earlier, start your LPS corals lower in the tank and move up a little each 7 to 10 days, until the desired placement is achieved.You may have to adjust things like water turbulence, flow and quality after placement of your large polyp stony corals; they require careful observation during their settling period. If they do not look good, keep an eye on them to make sure that they are not damaging or harming one another. Many species have long ‘sweeper’ tentacles covered in cytoplasts that they use to clear the area around them and establish their territory. Therefore keep LPS corals 3 to 4 inches apart from other corals to insure no fighting for territory is going on.
Feeding: Although all of these corals do receive nutrition from photosynthesis, they will also benefit from feedings. Zooplankton, frozen mysis shrimp or frozen brine shrimp along with other chopped meaty marine foods 2 or 3 times per week will feed them nicely.
Approximate Inflated Size: Medium size, 3" to 5"

 Captive Grown Montipora Digitata 3 Pack



Description: Montipora Digitata species is a good choice for those hobbyists wanting to make the jump to small-polyp stony (SPS) corals. Their appearance is soft and velvet-like when their polyps are extended. This coral also has very unique growth patterns and comes in a variety of colors, adding some nice coral “eye candy” to your reef.

Captive Grown Montipora Digitata corals are helping the future of the reef aquarium hobby. All of the Digitata packs contain pure aquacultured specimens, many generations removed from the original wild starter colonies. No tissue or skeleton of the wild specimen remain. All are third, fourth, fifth and even older generations.

Montipora Digitata for the most part is a branching coral. This means it will encrust a solid base and then begin growing up toward the light. The thickness of the branches seems to be determined by how much flow the coral is getting. To understand if your Montipora Digitata is healthy and happy in your reef tank is to look to see if it has polyp extension and white growth tips. Polyp extension generally indicates that you have good water quality and the coral is happy. The white tips at the end of the coral indicate that it is getting enough light and nutrients to grow. In short, M. digitata is a coral that can be appreciated by beginning and advanced hobbyists.

Propagation of the Montipora Digitata group of corals is handled like many other SPS corals and is very simple. Just grab a branch of the coral and break it off. Once the piece is removed glue it onto a piece of live rock or a frag plug. It’s okay to have your coral out of the water for several minutes. Once the glue is dry place your rock back into the tank.

Lighting Recommendations: Moderate to high from either T5's, LED's or metal halides.

Water Flow: Does best with a high level of water flow. The thickness of the branches seems to be determined by how much flow the coral is getting.

Feeding: Montipora corals are a photosynthetic coral and do not need to be directly fed. The coral can produce its food from the lights on your tank. Even though feeding this coral directly is not needed, you will notice a happier and faster growing coral if you do add some type of coral food to your tank such as oyster feast or reef chili.
