    Bought this today but the guy who was at the Lfs couldn't provide me with a proper id. After some research I'm guessing it is a rusty gorgonian? Can anybody confirm, or perhaps provide a better id?

    more important is to know if its a photosynthetic gorgonian or a non-photosynthetic gorgonian.

    sorry I cannot help you with an ID, maybe somebody else can.

    Can't help you with this specifically, but I've got the purple/blue version of that and it's photosynthetic. But it has to do with polyp color as far as I know. White polyps are nps afaik.

    Not sure how photosynthetic it is, but I have been feeding marine snow
