I believe those are Rhodactis, the subject of this contest is Ricordea. Beautiful shrooms though, nice pic!

Here's my entry (I think that this is a ricordia... lol)

- Nikon D90
- AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED
- ISO 800
- ƒ/5.6
- 1/250s

The coolest thing about this coral is we had no idea we had it. It just started growing on this rock with our Fire Cracker Polyps. :)

That's a Rhodactis indosinensis, super nice find! Too bad it doesn't qualify for the competition, I would vote that up in a heartbeat.

God bless!

How about this one... that “might” be a ricordia... this was a hitchhiker that came in on my live rock... he is kind of small and has not been positively ID’d as a ricordia...

That's a Ricordia for sure, just a young one. Keep it fed, and it should grow pretty fast!

I love these. They all look like those dipping dots that were popular way back never. Wonder if these would taste better
