Ok so I have always wanted Gorgonians and now I have ended up with what appears to be Diodogornia nodulifera, not close to what I thought I was getting. So be it, I now have to give this my best shot to keep them alive and growing. Yes according to all they are not easy to keep and from Aquarium Corals by Eric H Borneman they should be fed regularly and be in strong water flow to prevent the growth of algae on them. Ok so I have them in strong water flow to help assist but Eric also states that they must be brushed regularly to prevent the growth of algae, does anyone know how and with what to brush them? As far as feeding goes I am feeding phytoplankton, cylcopeeze and I am hoping to be feeding rotifers shortly. Is there anything else I should be trying to feed? Any other practical advice and experience will be appreciated.
