ECO-GORGONIAN ™ are sustainably produced Caribbean photosynthetic gorgonians. Small frags are sustainably collected in the Caribbean and then are attached to coral plugs & grown in a Florida greenhouse until encrusted and ready for the home aquarium. The adult colony is in no way affected and regrows its branches creating a no impact sustainably collected gorgonian for your saltwater reef tank.The Purple Eunice Eco-Gorg™ is a very rare color morph of a hardy gorgonian that is a favorite of expert aquarist Julian Sprung. However, it shouldn't be allowed to come into contact with other gorgonians, corals, or anemones to minimize inter-species aggression. Purple Polestars can adapt to a wide variety of lighting and prefer decent water flow. This purple Eunicea sp. is a highly collectible color morph of a striking photosynthetic gorgonian that grows upright branches. The gorgonian tissue is an ultra purple color while the chocolate-colored polyps give it a fuzzy appearance when fully open. Eunice gorgonians appear fuzzy when the polyps are extended, but they all have a relatively rough tissue texture defined up upturned calyces.
