Ricordea Anemone  If you translate the name “Ricordea”, it likely means “1000 pearls”.  Ricordeas are also called “wrong Florida corals”. They are a type of “anemone”, therefore not “real” coral. They come from the family of the Corallimorpharian, that occur in different colors of orange and green to neon-green and shining blue.  Ricordeas anemones grow to a diameter of 4 to 10 cm and can show up to six mouth-openings per animal.
