Just picked it up tonight. Not open all the way like it was at the store. The clerk said it was a Florida Ric but Im leaning towards rhodactis. The most brilliant orange you can imagine. I had one foot in the door and could see it from 30 ft away, glowing from the frag tank. Soon as it gets used to its new home I will try to take new pics.

Not sure why I cant capture the color orange as well as other colors. In person this coral is very bright and bold. These pics look very dull and bleached. Sorry!

That's a Ricordea yuma, they like low light, and color up great under bluer light, nice find!

Yuma? Are you sure? I have other Yuma but this is much different. It has much smaller tenticles than my other ones. They are even smaller than the tenticles on my Florida rics.

The Yumas have bumps on the mouth, Florida Rics have a smooth mouth. The last pic shows the bumps on the mouth perfectly.

Well, I let it acclimate for 3 weeks and finally moved it out into some more direct light. Its fully opened up and the color is getting real nice. Sorry bout the crappy pic. Im still workin with my phones cam. I saw the same yuma on rare reef for $100.00. I grabbed this one for $20.00
