Gorgonians are soft corals with a unique furry, branching form. These hardy soft corals add motion to your tank as the branches sway in the current, and the large polyps give the whole colony a striking furry appearance.
This is a photosynthetic variety, which houses symbiotic algae just like hard corals. Photosynthetic gorgonians like this do best with moderate lighting and flow, and plenty of nutrients. But they are very hardy and can survive in a wide variety of conditions.
This variety has been grown in the hobby for decades. Its a specimen of Pinnigorgia flava originally collected in the Philippines that has since been propagated by hobbyists worldwide. Its a fast-growing and hardy variety that grows well in home aquariums.
The fragment you purchase will look similar to the image shown, but because of natural variation among corals it will not look identical. These are pretty large frags, approximately 2-3″ long with multiple branches.
