saltwater plants?

What else could I put into my reef that aren't corals? Are gorgonians considered corals or are they plants? It'd be nice to fill in some spots with something different. Thanks in advance!

So I'm assuming they're photosynthetic?

Not all are. There are some that are photosynthetic and some aren't. And they do require a lot of water flow.

The first pic the tall one was all most dead at the lfs, most of it was only sticks, talked them down to 10.00. It's repaired it's self and is growing about 1/4in more in 4 months. The other got dragged be hide my rocks by my enchant in my old tank, and yep did not look good. 8 months latter looking good and growing.
You should see them in the ocean.

I can only imagine. My LFS has an assortment of them ranging from 12.99-24.99 depending on size and type obviously. May go get 1 or 2 types
