Hi, I recently got a deepwater ricordea but it doesn't seem to be too happy. I've got about 20 other corallimorpharia (discosoma, ricordea florida, ricordea yuma, rhodactis) and they are all doing just fine for the most part. I know my parameters are suitable, but what flow and lighting do dpwtr rics do well in? I would guess low for both, but just wanted to make sure. TIA

also i can post pics if anyone wants some

Should be good if your others are thriving… low light for sure. They also like direct feeding. Have you tried that at all yet?

yeah i moved it to an area with even less flow and light and it seems to be doing...alright i guess. before that it was sliming a bunch so i moved it into a more secluded place. I haven't had a chance to feed it but as soon as it puffs up a bit i will definitely try that. Thanks so much!
