I agree with the club meeting thing I have never been to one so do not know what to expect. We are glad the corals are enjoying their new home, Sara & I were hoping we did not drop to much on you at once. Your tank looks really nice & healthy I would have taken you up on that recordia if I had the room, but my tank is packed at this point in time.

I think if we could get a few people together from this forum and just discuss the hobby maybe over a bbq and beers that would be a start, I'm really happy about the new corals their doing really well I've been feeding them that oyster egg food and they seem to be liking it. The wife and I are looking at buying a home right now and I'm planning a 150g build for it, should be fun.

The BBQ sounds great. That little green coral we got from you is doing good, hopefully it will settle in & start to grow. When it is ready I will get it back to you.

Yes it was but a bird of Paradise frag fell against it & put it back into defense. It will be OK but still a bummer. My pictures are really bad but I will snap a shot of the thing in a week or so.

I dont know how to frag them either. if coppertop doesnt pick them upl I will. my number is 2182525. I work till 2:30 thurs-sunday. I could pick anything up you want to frag. the only thing I have for trade would be purple mushrooms, which are similar to rics but not bumpy.

I just did a quick search and found this tutorial of how to frag Rics.

http://www.thereeftank.com/forums/f267/ricf101-ricordea-fragging-113453.html

if this breaks forum rules, just remove link.

also the purple mushrooms in the background of the pics are the same as what I have.

That ricordia is so big you could probably slice it up like a pizza pie.

Adminguy. Let me know if your first lead falls thru. I could even pay for em. Also if you are getting rid of the rock they are on I could bring a replacement rock of equal or greater size. Live rock ofcourse. Unless you just want to frag me off a head or 2. I left my cell number in a earlier post. You can call or text if u wanna get ahold of me.

I really want to learn how to frag these things, they are lateral reproductive which I guess means they are connected with a soft tissue which feeds the entire colony on one rock, so that being said how do i remove one or even several from the rock without damaging the entire colony. hmmmm scratch

Post by turbotec on Thu May 12, 2011 12:35 pm

here is a nice video that shows how. I will see if I can find a few more tutorials about them. I cant speak from experience though cause I have never done it. Maybe call the guy from Reeftech or frogprince. Someone must know how. If you attempt it, save me 1 head and I will pay you for it!!





EDIT**********


I just found this post on reefcentral.com

What species of ricordea? I assume you mean Ricordea florida and not Ricordea yuma, correct?

They're very easy to frag:

1. Use a razer blade to cut it off the rock as close to the rock as you can (but do leave a little of the foot behind because it will grow back into a polyp)

2. Take the polyp and cut it through the mouth or between the mouths if you have multiple mouths. If you're cutting through the mouth I prefer to cut it in quarters with each piece getting a small part of the mouth. If a piece doesn't get part of the mouth don't worry about it -- it'll grow a mouth eventually it just takes longer to recover.

3. use bridal veil and a rubberband to hold it against a rock until it attaches to a rock after anout 3 - 7 days (sometimes longer). You can also stick it in a small jaw with some rubble until it attaches or sew it to a rock with fishing line.

You know, when I put this in my tank (too quickly) it kinda fragged itself. I have 2 small heads that removed themselves from the main rock.
Are you having a BBQ on Monday? I could bring these 2 little ones if someone wants them. Not that I want to get rid of them, but I could share the karma.
