    Advice on Gorgs!

    I am looking into a Blue Gorgonian! Can anyone give me some advice! Where should I put it in tank? What do I feed it? Are they hard to care for? I don't have a lot of coral experience so please be very basic with the terms!!!

    Thanx

    Why is it called "cargo" when it goes by ship, and "shipment" when it goes by car?

    Piatchie,
    Have you seen the gorg up close?
    What color are the polyps?

    Depending on the species of Gorgonian, some are Autotrophic (being sustained mainly by light), while others are polytrophic (requiring A LOT of feeding).

    Typically, from what I've seen, most gorgs with colorful or white polyps require a lot of feeding and don't fare well in the long term, while gorgs with brown polyps do better.

    Without seeing a picture, I may be wrong, but I don't think it will survive very long in your tank.

    In order to sustain it's needs, you would have to feed it to the point of fouling the water in your tank.

    I was reading up a little and it said to give the Gorg plenty of room and it needs additive like Calcium and Iodine and to feed it same as you would any other filter feeders! I have two type of photoplankton that I use. Would this be o.k.? If somone who owns one could lend some advice I would apreciate it!
