Are both of these gorg's? And if so do you know the exact type? Thanks in advance.

Those look like Atlantic brown gorgonians.. Brown to tan stalk with purple polyps!

Actually both have brown polyps and the thicker one has a more greyish stalk while the whispy (lol couldn't think of a better word) one is closer to white or tan.

can you advise where they are from?
If they are from the Caribbean then

#1 probably a Eunicea succinea
#2 can't see the polyp receptacles but if they are 45 degrees to the main branch - its probably a Muricea pinnata

They came with my TBS live rock, so I'm assuming the gulf? Off the coast of Florida.

Whichever ones they are they've been doing great for the 9 months I've had them.

Guess I should have looked on the TBS site, lol, they have pics and names on there, didn't think of it. So I think the thicker one is a Candelabra, and the whispy one is a Silver. For now thats what they are lol.
