    I have a Tan Gorgonian, but here is the where I differ slightly to Alan. I have mine high up in the tank under my ATI light. These corals IMO do not like a strong water flow.
    Mine is growing like mad.

    I think one should try position it so that the major water flow runs parallel to the branches i.e. along the flat side of the gorgonia, not at 90° to it.

    I think you need to be more specific about what type of Gorgonian. As you get photosynthetic and non-photosynthetic Gorgs. Flow also varies between Gorgs but generally a fairly brisk flow is needed.
