The yellow sea whip, Pterogorgia citrina, is a very hardy gorgonia found in the shallow waters of the Caribbean and Western Tropical Atlantic. It is an olive green to yellow color with lots of branches. The polyps are white when extended which gives the colony a fuzzy appearance. When the branches touch other objects they will often adhere to them, and can be propagated by cutting the newly attached portion from the main colony. They are one of the more hardy gorgonia on the market and are a great starter gorgonia if you are just getting into the soft coral market. Gorgonia are also called octocorals or soft corals, and are very closely related to the stony corals.
