I received my corals yesterday. They are incredible, even better than the photos. Ordering them was a breeze. Customer service was very organized. I will recommend you to my friends, thank you.

Our aquacultured purple gorgonian have large fluffy polyps. These are fast growing and easy to keep. They will grow under almost any light. Great beginner coral. The size is 3 inches tall and with 2-3 branches. It is encrusting on a frag tile 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
