What gorgonian? Nps or photosynthetic?

 

Yes they like lots of random flow but not direct flow or it will effect the flesh.

 

If its nps, it needs feeding, regularly.

if its an nps it is probably starving. Very hard to keep unless you are diligent about feeding at least daily. Some will need to be fed a few times a day until it is well established.

Overall the parameters you posted do not seem to present much of an issue, so perhaps the problem is something related to lighting, parameter fluctuations or flow.  A picture and some more info about your system and routines would be helpful to try to determine why it is not doing well.

Prob the direct flow is my guess. Directly in front of the pump isn’t really good for anything. Is it a new addition or have you had it for awhile? Sometimes things just die unknowingly. I moved my purple monsters over about 5-6 inches and one of them melted away in two days. It happens.

Knowing if its a non photosynthetic to photosynthetic is really important because if its nps- once a week feeding isn't enough.

@Pbalz what other corals do you have near it? It’s possible something with a sweeper could have stung it.

 

post some pics as soon as you can. Include one of the surrounding corals as well. Some corals could be 8-12 inches away and still put out some

really long stinging sweeper tentacles.

He was one the first corals I added it came in a beginner pack so I don’t think it’s an nps

Grube's gorgonian (Pinnigorgia flava) contains zooxanthellae, so it's a photosynthetic gorgonian; but it should also be fed.  Your feeding routine is probably acceptable.

 

It's relatively hardy.  Here's some more information: https://www.aquariumcreationsonline.net/ORAGrubesGorgonian.html
