Our purple gorgonian, Muriceopsis flavdia, is one of the photosynthetic gorgonians. They will grow under most lighting. Great beginner coral. The size is 4 or more inches. It has a flat foot that can be easily attached to a rock. It was collected in the Florida Keys.
Culturing of the colony is often accomplished by taking a branch of the coral and attaching that piece to live rock which will form a new colony.
The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within its body provides a majority of its nutritional needs and does not have to be fed.
Care Level: Easy
Lighting: Low to high
Waterflow: Moderate to high
Scientific name: Muriceopsis flavdia
