    My frogspawn and pulsing xenia grew tremendously over the last couple months. They're just touching now and theres no way i can move the frags because both corals grew around onto the rock. Any sugguestions?

    I've had these two xenias for about 8 months - when I turned on the lights this morning and really looked at them in their deflated state a couple of things became obvious.

    I was told that these are two different kinds of Xenia, however now I'm thinking otherwise. I know the right is a Pulsing Xenia but when researching the other I didn't find any Xeniidae that really looked like this. Upon further research I'm led to believe the left is an anthelia. It may not be...

    Finally thinned some of my pulsing Xenia out today. Decided to grab a quick Video of some of the frags and the Xenia parent "Forest" They were pulsing away before the lights go out in the evening. Fragging went pretty well, sharp razor blade and some rubberbands and frag discs. Try to cut...
