Product Description

Pterogorgia anceps is found in very shallow water and is very hardy. This variety of gorgonian does not have flat branches like the other sea whips that we sell and is not rounded like the purple plume or rods. It has rough, well-defined edges, that are sometimes triangular or square. They are a very pretty deep purple but can change their color to a golden color depending on the lighting and diet.

Nano: 3 to 5 inches

Normal: >5 to 8 inches

Large: >8 to 12 inches

Please Note:  Any new fish purchased from us or from a local pet store should to be quarantined.  All fish from anywhere in the wild can be possible carriers of bacteria and protozoa that can lead to an infection in your system, so we always recommend that you use some sort of quarantine system prior to adding them to your system.  If you have a fish only system and can medicate the whole system, you may not need a separate quarantine tank.  If you have a reef system that cannot be medicated, a good ultraviolet sterilization system should prevent any kind of disease outbreak.  We medicate our system for bacterial infections and protozoans, but because we don’’t always hold our fish for long periods of time, there is no way to be sure all the protozoan cysts have been killed.  A little bit of prevention will save you lots of trouble down the line.

    This is a really neat purple… Almost a metallic shiny look to it! Teeny tiny polyps came out the first day and are quite spectacular!

    Awesome specimen from KP. I ordered the “nano” option and it was the perfect shape for my 10 gallon. Looks like a mini purple cactus! The color is awesome (just like the pic) and its tan polyps started extending within 24 hours. Very cool!

    Received one of these beauties. Very deep purple. Brown polyps that came out immediately when put in the tank. Much better looking in person than in the picture!
