    I'm a winner?? That's great because Peter just picked up a Panda Goby and I read that they must have a Pocillopora.

    I can cut you a fresh frag of the red planet if you wanna try again. That one had been sitting in kinda low light for a bit.

    Special Delivery from Florida - Gorgonians. Picked up 9pcs. of 7 different varieties. They were out of stock of the one I really wanted - Red Finger. They seemed to have survived shipping and some polyps are opening.

    The first one is a Purple Sea Plume also called Rough Sea Plume or Purple Brush Gorgonian (Muriceopis Flavida) It is both photosynthetic and has to be fed.

    Once these corals get established we plan on fragging them to share within the club.

    What do you feed it and how often?

    How often does your gorgonian? Mine seems to open more at night.

    Panda Goby sounds neat. Do they hang out in all sps? or just Poci?

    I feed that tank generously every morning with live phytoplankton, Rotifers, and Tigger Pods. No processed food-only live. They eat fresher than I do! Soon we will be culturing Apocyclops pods to add to that tank also. they are cool because they feast on algae growing in your tank. Our garage is looking like a science experiment.

    Most of the Gorgonians are new (had for a day) the other 4 that we have had for a while are open all day. Several of the new ones are open today.
    The Panda has proven to be most elusive. He is about the size of a Tic-Tac candy and we have only seen him once. He is adorable though. I understand that they only hang on Poci.

    Wow...it must be...based on everything you have going on. My bet is that the cars don't get the garage?
