The gorg sounds like it might be a non-photosynthetic type which means it will require regular feedings to do well. Typically white polyped gorgs are filter feeders. The nudibrancs are not a wise purchase unless you know the exact species. Most (if not all) have specialized diets that we can rarely provide for properly.
Also, One more question. What kind of epoxy or superglue is good for attaching polyps and the gorgonian to live rock? and how do I do it?
Epoxy puddy is good. You should be able to find it at the LFS
. With the glue, you can get that at any hardware store for a reasonable price. Just be sure it is super glue gel
and contains cyanoacrylate
in the content list. That will mean it will not harm the corals.
If the gorg comes unattached, be sure you clean the area to be fragged to remove the "flesh" from the stock or it will necros and become loose. Like >>this
