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 multiple 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
