    Hi all, I need some advice as Im new to corals and just got a couple and they dont look great. I have a 3 head duncan frag that barely opens (2 weeks now, 2 spots in tank) and a pulsing xenia frag I dont know where to place (just 2 days old but looks miserable) I have 2 black boxes on a...

    Hi guys, I have a two part question. Recently i bought a small xenia frag, and noticed that he seemed to be getting beaten around pretty good by my MP40 and MP10 (which were cranked right up), therefore causing him to not open. I moved him to a few different locations in my tank but nothing's...

    I got a big piece of Xenia from my local fish store! And when I put it in my 55 gallon reef it was open and flowing for about 4 hours then it started closing and didn't open back up after about 2 days of being closed it shriveled up and just dissapeared. Why did this happen? Could it be because...

    Hey guys this morning i turned on my lights to see the xenia curled over and shrunken. I just added a new powerhead but the flow is away from the xenia. Is there anything i can do?!

    Yesterday my anemone moved itself next to my two stalks of xenia - I moved it but the stalk it was touching isn't quite right - it's a bit closed up and not standing as straight. Did the anemone do that? Will it be okay?

    As much as you want, just bring a bag/bucket... I have a few pieces of tile with about 4-6 stalks on them already, but I will cut as much as you wanna take. Small vid of the xenia

    Hi Everyone, My white spot xenia was doing fine and has been in the tank for 9 months. I am a bit worried about it because it is slowly disappearing and I don't know why. This is what it looks like today: The only thing that touches (but only slightly) is a blue mushroom. Everything else...

    My Xenia frag is all closed up and has been for a 2 or 3 days. My other corals are doing well (a duncan frag, a star polyps frag, and 2 kenya trees). I tested all of my water parameters (multiple times to make sure I read them right). Ammonia- 0 Nitrite- 0 Nitrate- 0 (possibly less than 0.5...

    I have about a grapefruit size colony of xenia. I came home from the store and found all the stalks shriveled. They have been doing very well. Been in the tank for about a week. I did find that my actinic bulbs did not come on today. Everything was good before I left (except I didn't...

    Hi, I bought a large purple Xenia cluster from my local LFS. It looked great at the the store, but started to die around a week after it was in my tank. My parameters are nearly perfect and I've had it before, but got rid of it since it started to take my take over my tank. I have it placed...

    We purchased a Xenia frag a few weeks ago. At first it was doing very well, it was pulsing within an hour of placing in the tank. This week we noticed that the four stalks were drooping and one stalk was breaking off. The color is still very good, however this morning, one stalk is missing I...
