They are easiest to identify upon maturity when colonies form distinctive small secondary polyps between larger polyps called siphonozooids. In the wild, Heteroxenia are found in calmer, back-reef niches and may occur in muddy or turbid waters. - - Aquacultured Heteroxenia are hardier than wild-caught species and tend to reproduce quickly. Therefore, provide adequate space between them and sessile animals, especially other types of soft corals. They require a medium to high light level combined with a medium to strong water movement within the aquarium. For continued good health, they will require the addition of iodine and other trace elements to the water. -
