    Terrible Advice Tuesdays: Gorgonians need to be fed food (phytoplankton, etc) because they are non-photosynthetic.

    The rest of the story: Some, but not all, gorgonians are non-photosynthetic. There are plenty of photosynthetic ones that can survive on light alone.

    And there are plenty of aquacultured Gorgonians available that come in a variety of shapes and colors. No need to buy wild caught ones, go for the aquacultured photosynthetic Gorgonians.

    Not sure this can be considered terrible advice or maybe its not aimed at SA
    I cant remember when last i saw a photosynthetic gorgonian. Pretty sure if one hit cape town it would be in @MistaOrange 's tank.
