Coral Care requirements: Our Florida ricordea are kept under a Kessil AP700 fixture that runs for 8.5 hours a day. Florida ricordea do best under medium - med high light, they will melt under very high light. They prefer to grow on live rock instead of being loose on the sand. Ricordea coral are easy to keep in low - high flow, they will grow very large under low flow and tend to split faster in higher flow. Ricordea can be kept together in large groupings of various different colors. This coral is tolerant of higher or lower nutrients alike. Ricordea make a great addition to a new aquarium.
Shipping & Returns
Shipping & Returns
We guarantee against DOA (Dead On Arrival). We guarantee live arrival and for the coral to be alive for 5 days after arrival. You are eligible for store credit if your coral is damaged or DOA. To be eligible for credit you must email pictures of the coral. If damage or death is caused by UPS damage I'll try to work with you, but they do not honor claims on perishable items. Weather delays and acts of god are not covered by UPS. Reshipment fee will have to be paid by the buyer if corals are lost due to a weather or mechanical failure delay.
We ship all packages with UPS overnight. These are our flat rates, we do not charge combined shipping fees or other add on fees like some stores. Fuel prices have driven things up and UPS has raised rates a lot so sadly we must do the same. We don't charge for our boxes and prefer not to raise our coral prices to make up for shipping costs.
If you live in a remote area or UPS tends to deliver late to you, I advise requesting your order be held for pickup at a local UPS station because it will arrive earlier there.

Coral Care Guidelines: Zoanthids are generally easy to keep and make a great addition to a new or established aquarium. Our zoanthids are grown and kept under Kessil AP700 lighting, but will do well in a variety of lighting conditions. Most zoanthids and palythoa like med - high lighting, moderate to strong flow, and fairly stable water conditions. They can tolerate imperfect conditions and are one of the more forgiving corals to new aquarists mistakes. Zoanthids occur in a huge variety of colors; many reefers create gardens of them in their aquariums. All new coral additions should be dipped in CoralRX, Revive, Bayer, or a coral dip of your choice to help prevent introduction of pests into your closed reef system. As vendors we do our best to sell pest free products, but you should always dip regardless of who you purchase corals from.These are our aquarium parameters:Salinity 1.025Alkalinity 8.5 - 9.2Calcium 420Magnesium 1400
