Does anyone know about Ricordea mushrooms??? Availability, care tips, price, experiences with it??? Is it something a beginner in corals should consider??

Rics are very similar in care to the green hairy mushrooms that several of us have. They adapt to a range of lighting, not too much and not too little though, and tank conditions, although they prefer and will grow best in low flow. I would say they are good for a beginner. More difficult than a typical mushroom but its still a mushroom. Price depends on what you want to buy. A regular ric from an individual could run 10 to 15 bucks. But there are different color combinations that you'll have to pay upward of 50 bucks to get.

Yeah we are considering this in the near future. Thanks for all the info, if you know of anyone who is selling let me know, we'd like to check it out in person rather than buying online. Is there anything that it doesn't get along with? Got a small frag of xenia that just attached himself and a toadstool.

The ricordia will get along with anything. They grow right up the side of my toadstools and it doesn't bother them. I will check to see if there is one I can get you in my tank. I will see if I can get you a picture if them also. I don't charge too much. Usually $0.0 or so.

From what I've read the Yuma's are a little harder than the Florida's I was looking for some color in our tank. From reading about them some were saying that the Florida one's supposedly come in more color varieties. Do you have any regular mushrooms that are red, purple, blue, that you are willing to sell?

I always have a few of the red and purple mushrooms floating around. I usually gather them up and put then in my mushroom basket for when people ask for them. I will see what I can gather up today and get back with ya.

Ok, this doesn't really compare to the one Jason/Daniel got this weekend, but here's my big Yuma. For reference, this thing is 4-5 inches across:
