The Blue Polyp Gorgonia (Acalycigorgia spp) is also referred to as the Blue sea fan or Blue Tree coral. Blue is a very unusual coloration for any coral, and this Sea Fan will make a great showpiece or centrepiece to any reef aquarium. The red or orange base colour with intense blue polyps differentiates this variety from other sea fans.

The Blue Polyp Gorgonian is peaceful, but it should be given adequate space away from neighbouring corals or anemones. Underwater epoxy is commonly used to anchor its base to a piece of live rock in the reef aquarium. It is more challenging to maintain this species, as they require supplemental feeding several times per week. This Sea fan is not photosynthetic and requires a low level of lighting to ward off a build-up of microalgae. It also requires a stronger water flow and the addition of iodine, calcium, strontium, and other trace elements to the marine water system.

Because the Blueberry Sea Fan is not photosynthetic, its survival is dependent on regular and frequent feedings of micro-plankton, live, baby brine shrimp, or foods designed for filter feeding invertebrates. This Gorgonian should only be maintained in a well established reef aquarium.
