I knows its a Gorgonian, not sure what kind or if its non-photosynthetic. I target feed it Reef Roids a few times a week but it doesnt seem to be growing. Most pics I see online show these with wayyy more polyps so I am not sure if I'm caring for it wrong. This is a cell phone pic.

Looks photosynthetic, but I'm afraid from your photo, it's very difficult to tell.
Can you post a better picture?

Most photosyntic Gorgonian will have brown or dark polyps if the polyp are white or brightly colored then it is nps
