    Very nice colour, what are you feeding them, and how often?

    Twice a week target feeding, mix cyclopeeze with reef pearls the feed over under and around them. I do this while I fight off the cleaner shrimp they are buggers when target feeding.

    lol, yip, those cleaner shrimps love to eat.

    Are both gorgonianas the same? The one in the front seems to have bigger polyps.

    Nope they all different actually, the one in the front has massive polyps and when I bought him he was tiny in thee months amount of polyps have tripled. The one on the rock has smaller polyps with a white stem. The one in the far bottom right has tinnnnnnny polyps and as a bright yellow stem. I am going hunting for more want a red one with white polyps, idol marines has the one I want in their tiny tank but they won't sell it.
