Description

Meet the coral that will possibly mesmerize you with its pulsating action. The little polyps individually open and close while waving around in the water column. This coral can do really well growing rapidly at times over the reef. Keep this one well confined to rock pieces where it can be managed and cropped back. We like to place them on a separate island or on top of a pinnacle. A great way to manage this coral is to place rock rubble around the edges in the zone you wish to keep. Xenia will grow onto the rock pieces and then they can be removed and sold to your local fish store or traded.
