A few weeks ago I bought my first Gorgonian, from Reefworks. It's settled in really well with great polyp extension and is now starting to sprout new branches.

I'd like to get another different Gorgonian, as I've plenty of space along the back wall of my tank where they get great flow from the gyre and unobstructed lighting.

Although there are some Gorgs in the shops round here, they either look really unhealthy or they're the pretty but doomed non-photosynthetic types.

So I wondered if anyone on the forum had a Gorg frag available, ideally a different colour or shape to my current one? Or could recommend a shop or dealer that has them?

Cheers,
Paul

Oasis sometimes has them, and always look in great condition, although they're likely fresh from the wild. Give them a call?

Thanks :)
Oasis is not very far from me but last time I went (about a year back) they'd just had the river Irwell flood their fishroom with a total wipeout! Hopefully they're back to normal now; I might go for a look this weekend.

Got myself a Muriceopsis flavida yesterday. Looking happy this morning in the sun :)
