I think I messed up a bit here. :-/ I thought I was ready to try a gorgonian. So I did a bit of research and decided I wanted to try the non-photosynthetic variety first. So I read up on these... in general. My LFS is 90 minutes away, mostly in traffic. So I don't really know which non-photosynthetic gorgonian, if any, I'll be able to get. So I'll see if I like any that happen to be there. And I do. A lovely blue one! So I bring it home and get it in the tank and all. Then I researched this specific one. Ugh. From what I've been reading, looks like this is the most difficult one out there and nobody has success with them. I shouldn't have bought it. I'm a bit irritated at the LFS for selling it... but I'm really irritated with myself. LFS won't take it back. So I am going to try it out and do my best. Today I tried feeding. So I gave it a little dose of DT Phytoplankton. Checked on it ten minutes later and it's mostly open. So I go ahead and deliver a full tsp in its midst. It was like it closed up in a symphony. I'm guessing (only a guess) that this was it capturing its food. My plan is to do this every 3 days - more or less. And see how it goes - adusting as I figure is needed. Tips on this variety greatly appreciated.
