The Golden Rod Sea Fan grows in beautiful fan-like formations. Its branches are deep red or purple colored and covered with beautiful golden yellow polyps. A hard to find, beautiful, finger gorgonian out of the Indo Pacific.
Moderate, for experienced aquarists.
Aggressiveness Very peaceful and pose no threat to any other corals or gorgonians. They get along with their own species, but other gorgonians can over take them, so keep each at a distance from one another.
They require good water movement to prevent algae growth.
The Golden Rod Sea Fan requires low to moderate lighting (PAR 100-200). T5's, Metal Halides, or LED's can all maintain the Golden Rod Sea Fan when the proper PAR levels are provided. We recommend a 14-20K color spectrum for best coloration.
Mount the Golden Rod Sea Fan, using glue or putty, towards the bottom of the aquarium where it will receive high water flow and low to moderate levels of light.
