Recently I ran across a really reasonably priced vendor with some nice colored ric's.

I thought it was floridasealife.com but I tried that and get some fishing page.

Anyway I would like to hear your favorite source for ricordia.

I think the site you're thinking of is sealifeflorida.com - ?

Your right,

I did figure this out but I would really like to know of other good vendors.


Recently there was a diver/collector that sold his entire collection on e-bay because he was moving to bali or somewhere in the indopacific to teach coral farming to locals.

There was something like 75 ricordea and 20 caribbean discosoma etc.

It was a phenominal collection but sold for over $1200. Not a bad average price given the colors but a bit rich unless the plan was to re-sell.

Anyhow that collection kinda hooked me on the idea of finding some top notch ricordea.

Donnovon (sp?) has some top notch stuff, he's down in Florida...

What do you know about this guy who unloaded his collection? Do you have details on what he's doing? Where he is? That's pretty cool.

Liveaquaria.com in the divers den. I just picked up 8 nice multiple shades of purple ricordea florida from their retail store.

I find the forums here to be a good place to buy from.

Part of it too is what you think reasonable is, which I think $15-$16 a polyp for a rf with shipping included.

Good luck.
