Our Gorgonian Frag had it's top fragged also. It was perfectly healthy and within 4 hours had extended ALL of it's polyps !! It is in those minute details that you can appreciate the degree of professionalism of a supplier...
The top section showed a stub already developping... Incredible Aquarium provided us with this beauty and shows extreme care as always !!
(meaning without supplemental feedings)
As seen in DAY 15 video: YES !
A Marine Biological System can sustain Gorgonian ! Two new polyps have developped.
But can it provide a continuous input of nutrients consisting of Zooplankton and Micro-Particles needed for normal growth ? This is what the EOS tank is all about. Timestamped photographs and videos will document further developments: positive or negative. As of now this tank hosts an amazing variety of organisms and micro-organisms that complement each other in establishing those needed conditions.
From Giant Molecules to Aerobic Bacteria - Micro to Macro Algae - Copepods to Acorns - Bryozoans to Nudibranch !! Bryozoans for example are microspic particle feeders that can sustain themselves in a Marine Biological System: so time will tell how Gorgonian do in this environment.
