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 Plume Eco-Gorg™ is a beautifully colorful morph of a gorgonian that looks great in an aquarium with a wavemaker or surging water movement. This gorgonian is not particularly demanding and relatively non-agressive. However, it shouldn't be allowed to come into contact with other gorgonians, corals, or anemones to minimize inter-species aggression. Purple Plumes prefer medium to high lighting and prefer decent water flow. This purple Pseudopterogorgia bipinnata is a rare and collectible color morph of a striking photosynthetic gorgonian that grows feather-like secondary branches off of a main axis. In the wild colonies can be over one meter in height, but in the aquarium they can be trimmed to whatever size is most appropriate. The gorgonian tissue is an ultra purple color and the polyps are very small and tan in color.
