It's Latin name doesn't say this sea fan is yellow: Gorgonia Violacea, but indeed, it's natural colour is this bright yellow on one side but purple on the other. Gorgonians, like corals, are animals living in sessile colonial polyps, organized in a tree shape. Each polyp has 8 tentacles that filter the plankton and consume it. The general structure, a skeleton both soft and hard, called gorgonine do not grow in the direction of the sun (it does not require light to grow) but perpendicular to the current, in order to filter a maximum of water flow.
