Care Level for Yuma Ricordea
Ease of Care: Moderate. Yuma Ricordea, while hardier than some other coral types, require stable water conditions and proper lighting to thrive, making them more suitable for intermediate level aquarists.
Lighting: Moderate. These corals do best under moderate lighting conditions, but it's important to acclimate them properly to avoid stress from too much light.
Water Flow: Low to Moderate. Yuma Ricordea prefers gentle water movement to aid in feeding and maintaining their health without damaging their delicate tissue.
Water Parameters: Stable aquarium conditions are crucial. Aim for a temperature range of 76-82°F, a pH of 8.1-8.4, and specific gravity around 1.025-1.026.
Dietary Needs: They are primarily photosynthetic but benefit from supplemental feeding.
Recommended Foods: Microplankton, finely minced seafood, or coral food formulas designed for filter feeders and mushroom corals.
Feeding Frequency: Supplemental feeding 1-2 times per week can promote better growth and coloration but is not required for survival.
