What kind of light do gargonians need?


Recommended Posts

Also depends on the type of photosynthetic gorgonian. You need to ID the species as best as possible. If you don't know the species post a pic and others here can help with the ID. For ID purposes provide a full shot of the coral and a macro of its open polyps.

im not really sure on the species exact name or the scientific name, i just see it pretty often at my LFS and i wanted to know what it needed/ if there worth it. They label it just as a "purple gargonian" ...

Well actually, does it have thin, grey-brown branches and steel blue polyps?

Could be a Guaiagorgia which needs dim lighting... you should try to identify what precisely it is because gorgonia go polar opposites on lighting depending on what they are.
