Gorgonians

Hey all. I was just wondering what do you guys think of these corals?
Do you have any experience with them. I think they are very interesting and i would like to have 1.

TIA

Unfortanetly, most don't do well in captivity at all. They require a LOT of phytoplankton and LOTS of flow. Most of which can't be replicated in our tanks at home. However, there are encrusting gorgonians that do much better, but still need extra care (usually brighter lighting and occasional feedings) such as Briareum asbestinum, Eunicea sp., or Erythropodium sp. gorgonians. My advice is to not waste your money on a "fan" gorgonian.

Here is a list of them that LA has. Some of them are rated moderate care level while some are difficult all the way up to expert only.
