i thought yuma and florida were just two different species of Ricordea?

yumas having bubbly mouths and florida's not...the last pic looks like the mouths are plain..therefore being florida's

yumas have bubbles arund the mouths where floridas don't. yumas also have a different somewhat unique bubble pattern, but the bubbles around the mouth is the best way I know to tell them apart. Maybe someone else can chime in with a better determining factor.

R. florida typically has a 'bubble' pattern that is a pretty consistant size and tightly packed distrobution across the oral disk. R. yuma have kind of a mixed 'bubble' size, and are more widely distributed across the disk. I will guess that yours are Ricordea yuma.

As Gary pointed out, they are not technically a 'soft' coral; they are much closer related to stonies and zoanthids
