purple sea fan is a NPS gorgonian commonly found growing attached
to hard bottom in depths of 40-60 ft. We only collect the
branching variety which is much nicer than the cylindrical whips
of the same species. This
beautiful non-photosynthetic gorgonian features thin
delicate branches with a deep purple coloration. The polyps are
small and white. NPS animals need to be fed regularly with a
quality coral formula, plankton or prepared food such as Coral Smoothie.
Sizes vary between 6-8" mounted on a reef plug.
