Aquacultured Violet Gorgonian Frag is WYSIWYG. The gorgonians (Suborder Holaxonia) include the sea blades, the sea fans, the sea rods and the sea whips. They form beautiful and sometimes very large colonies that take a tree-like or bush-like form. The branchy gorgonin base holds firm against strong water currents that bring food and oxygen to the polyps whilst carrying away their waste products.
Gorgonians use their fine tentacles and stocky mucus to capture phytoplankton. Some, such as Diodogorgia, must capture all of their food for a living. While most if not all gorgonians rely upon phytoplankton and tiny zooplankton for their food, a few are additionally capable of harboring zooxanthellae.
Copepods make up the bulk of most zooplanktivorous corals’ diets. In this respect, captive corals of all sorts benefit greatly from the regular addition of copepods. Gorgonians generally prefer small sized plankton (e.g. bacterioplankton) and so benefit most from a product that includes individual copepods from all life stages (not just the biggest and oldest!).
