Our aquacultured purple gorgonian has large fluffy polyps. It is fast growing and easy to keep. They will grow under almost any light. Great beginner coral. The size is at least one branch that is 2.5-3 inches tall. It is encrusting on a frag plug for easy placement on the substrate or on rock.
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
Waterflow: Moderate to high
Scientific name: Gorgonian
