    alright, let's see them... :)

    I'm very fortunate to have kept this guy alive as I've heard many horror stories about real pink Yumas... I've had this guy for atleast 7-8 months now.. have stayed in shaded areas of my tank for many months (4 months) before I finally brought it out in indirect MH lighting.. it's doing pretty good still so I'm very happy...

    marv I have never had much problem with those ones melting-its the hot pink that looks like barbie pink that always melt on me. I have ones that same color that I frag all the time.

    Pink yuma. Was actually pretty hardy. It was temporarily in my sump
    and attached to another rock. When I removed it, there was a piece of
    remaining tissue on the rock that regenerated into a new polyp.

    This one was in the shop sharing a tank with a Rhinopias. The owner
    put goldfishes in as feeders (bad practice) and this Ricordia caught one
    and ate it. Wouldn't have beleived it if I didn't see it.

    Okay, so these aren't as appeasing to the eye as those above, but here are a few of mine.

    R. yumas (correct me if I'm wrong on ID)
