No one is flaming anyone. They are just giving their opinion. Just so we know flaming is not someone telling me what I dont want to hear. I personally would have told you the same thing. That`s my opinion.



You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.

Not trying to flame crister - but I'd say concern is appropriate when someone sees something labeled "expert only" and their question is "but is it REALLY expert only?"

Make the current go right over him. The algae builds up easy in my opinion. They do alright with laminar flow.

No one's flaming you, but you actually did ask if they were that hard to keep......

Stopped by the lfs today, and happened to remember your post as I was looking at their coral tanks and asked the owner about them, and he said he wouldn't go anywhere near it. He said they had one in about a year ago, and all the tending they could give it still couldn't keep it alive....

If I was going to have a tank with a gorgonian like that, that's the only type of coral I would put in there, that way you could run minimal lighting to keep the algea off of it. Like I said I have had an orange gorgonian and there very smallest amount of algea would make the tissue melt right before your eyes. But it was very beautiful, I managed to keep it alive for about 7 months, it was a good eater too.
