This is a colorful non-photosynthetic Sea Whip. This is one of the more uncommon varieties we get in and are not always available. We recommend moderate to higher water flow for this species. Colors and shapes vary, they are beautiful. These are sure to add bright color to your aquarium! It is best to place them in an area algae will not grow on them with plenty of water flow. They have white polyps when they open and open and close as they prefer. 

These Gorgonians are filter feeders, and non photosynthetic. It helps to spot feed them. We feed them live enriched Artemia nauplii and some other various corals foods available on the market a few times a week. 

Gorgonians are safe to keep with our captive bred seahorses.
