hey guys thaught i should show some of my new inhabitants to my small ocean
Very nice Lindsay. I love Gorg's. How long have you had it?
alfie ive had it for 2 weeks now ,do they enjoy lots of light
not to clued up on it
Very very nice gorgonian.
Do you know what type it is?
Lindsey, you really need to research before you buy, many corals need specialist care, you could end up losing it, which is a shame for the coral and a bit of a whack on your wallet
As far as i know Gorgain dont need light because they are filter feeder and have no photozella bactria like the sun coral.
Lindsay, being no expert at this I would say that is Diodogornia nudilifera due to the colours and contrasting calyces. If it is it is aposymbiotic and then lighting is irrelevant, as they have no zooxanthellea. Not the end of the world though. They feed on zooplankton and phytoplankton. I feed mine the following and they seem to be doing well. I use a mixute of Cyclopeeze, Coral Frenzy,and a combination the following Kent marine products ( Phytomax,Zoomax+ Chromomax). I feed twice a week and mine are doing just fine. Be careful to watch that algae does not grow on them due to the light. But nothing a light brush can't solve. This mix is good for your other corals as well so no wastage. The Kent product is highly concentrated and I only use 1 drop of each per feeding.
weeman it was given to me by a friend so i will take good care of it
Alfie thanx for the info on food types much appreciated
